BOSTON, Mass (WBZ NewsRadio) — The body of 19-year old Maximillian Carbone was discovered in a wooded area behind the Diablo Glass School on Terrace Street in Boston.
The Wentworth Institute student was reported missing after he failed to return from a party on Allegheny Street early Saturday morning. The search was called off for Carbone around 9:30 a.m. Sunday after the body was discovered about a block from his last known location. Members of the Wentworth community and people from Carbone’s hometown of Nahant had been combing the streets for him, going door-to-door handing out flyers with his picture.
During a press conference Sunday, Wentworth Director of Public Safety Bill Powers said Carbone's family came to the school for help on Saturday, prompting the search to begin. A cursory search took place Saturday, according to Powers. The search resumed Sunday morning.
“Shortly after they got to the hill is when Boston Police received the initial phone call that someone had been found,” Powers said.
The medical examiner has removed the body and an autopsy will be performed, but police do not believe Carbone's death was suspicious.
School officials are on scene to counsel students.
In a statement Sunday, the family of Carbone said, "Our hearts are broken. Max was a sweet, happy and loving son, brother and friend. He was a hardworking student who cared about helping people. He will be missed dearly."
