Coroner: Body found in pond was missing man

A body found floating in a Longmont pond yesterday has been identified as a man who went missing last month.

The Boulder County Coroner’s Office confirms that the body of a 19-year-old man reported missing in Longmont last week has been found floating in a pond in the Golden Ponds Nature Area.

Aravind Elangovan was first reported missing by his parents March 31, shortly before 11 p.m., according to Longmont Police. Police said he suffered from various mental conditions, and was not wearing pants or shoes when he disappeared.

When he went missing, it was publicized across the nation that he had recently returned to Longmont from life as a student at Brown University in Rhode Island, according to police. 

Numerous members of the Longmont Department of Public Safety, partners of the Longmont Police, search-and-rescue dogs, volunteers and Elangovan's family and friends looked for him.
