Coroners have identified a body pulled from the White River in Indianapolis as that of a missing Carmel man.

The Marion County Coroner's Office identified the body Tuesday as that of a 23-year-old Matthew Walton Ward.

Ward had been missing since being dropped off at a bar in the Broad Ripple neighborhood on Oct. 12. His mother has said he planned to meet a woman he had met online.

Workers found his body in the river Monday just a few blocks from the bar. It was recovered by an Indianapolis Fire Department dive team.
