The body pulled from Lake Union on Sunday has been identified as a New Zealand teenager who had been missing since last week.
Wynter Emerson, 18, died on Sept. 2, and his cause of death is “probable drowning,” according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office. His manner of death is classified as undetermined.
Harbor units recovered his body from the water Sunday morning after receiving calls from witnesses who saw it floating in the south end of Lake Union, according to the Seattle Police Department. Police do not suspect foul play.
Emerson was last seen at the Bumbershoot musical festival, which ended Sept. 1, according to the New Zealand Herald. He had been traveling through the United States and Canada on his own as part of a gap year before attending a university.
His parents had been in regular contact with him before he went missing, a family spokesman told the New Zealand newspaper.
