According to WIFR, the Boone County Coroner's Office has identified the body pulled from the Kishwaukee River Thursday as Kyle Rogers.

Family and friends were hoping for a different outcome but, sadly, Kyle Rogers was found dead one week after going missing. Authorities have confirmed the tragic news after his body was recovered from Kishwaukee River in Belvidere park Thursday night.

Belvidere and neighboring communities pulled together for search parties, flyer distribution, and support for the Rogers family. The efforts by Belvidere authorities don't go unnoticed either. I did not reach out to the family for a comment but offered condolences.

Thoughts and prayers are with Kyle's family and friends during this difficult time.
