The body was identified by the University of North Dakota Department of Forensic Pathology using dental records, according to a statement issued Saturday by the Wilkin County Sheriff’s Office.

The cause of death has not yet been determined.

Sadek’s disappearance led to days of public searching, with teams searching areas along the river as well as aerial surveys.

A warrant for Sadek’s arrest for two felony charges and one misdemeanor charge involving drugs was issued three days after his disappearance.

Sadek allegedly had sold marijuana to a police informant at the North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, where he was a student.

All follow-up investigation will be coordinated with the college, the sheriff’s office said in the statement.
