CHICAGO The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office has identified a body pulled from Lake Michigan as that of a University of Chicago student who went missing a week ago.

The body of 20-year-old Austin Hudson-LaPore was recovered from the lake early Wednesday by Chicago police after the body was spotted by a fisherman. The third-year student was last seen around 8:30 p.m. on June 12 at his apartment near the university's campus.

Family members and friends have said they believe Hudson-LaPore went to Lake Michigan's shore to observe storms that swept the area the day he disappeared. He had taken his final exams the same day.

Authorities have yet to announce a cause of Hudson-LaPore's death.
