A South Carolina family looking for their missing teenage son has found his body in the woods in North Carolina after he died in a motorcycle crash.
The Gaston Gazette reports that 18-year-old Jacob Lance LaMarr was found Friday by his family who had last seen the young man five days earlier.
North Carolina Trooper J.J. Letcavage said the teen was killed when his motorcycle crashed into the woods in Gaston County. He had been wearing a helmet, but the impact of the crash tore it off. Letcavage thinks the accident happened July 25.
LaMarr lived with his family in Clover, S.C., on weekends but worked at a restaurant in Gastonia and stayed with friends in Charlotte while he was working.
