LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Little Rock police say the body of an Illinois man who had traveled to Arkansas for a wedding has been pulled from the Arkansas River.

Officers said 28-year-old Brennen Willis of O’Fallon, Illinois, disappeared late Saturday after leaving his hotel for a jog. Police said someone reported seeing a body Monday behind the Old State House Museum.

Police spokesman Steve Moore said an ID card found on the body matched Willis and that the body was clad in the same green shorts in which Willis was last seen.

A cause of death wasn’t immediately released.
