MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) – A body found in a small pond along the Oklahoma City/Midwest City border over the weekend has been identified as a man last seen more than a week ago.

Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes said Tuesday that the discovered Sunday has been identified by the state medical examiner’s office as 25-year-old Philip Manzi.

Clabes said Manzi, who’s from Midwest City, was reported missing Oct. 15 and that his family said he hadn’t been seen since Oct. 12 when he left his home. Clabes said Manzi’s vehicle was impounded by Oklahoma City police the day he was last seen and was near the area where his body was found.

Clabes said the medical examiner has not determined the cause of death, but that foul play is not suspected.
