RANDOLPH, MASS. (WHDH) - Randolph Police confirm that a body found in the Great Pond Reservoir Thursday is missing teen Christopher Defreitas.
The Norfolk District Attorney’s Office says search crews pulled a body from a reservoir in Randolph on Thursday. Clothing and a phone belonging to 16-year-old Defreitas were found Tuesday along the shoreline at the reservoir.
“It’s not someone that you would want to lose. He was just a great guy,” said friend and soccer teammate Erilson Teixeira.
Defreitas was reported missing Monday night after disappearing from his home, investigators say. State and local police scoured a reservoir along Pond Street Tuesday, utilizing air, water and ground teams.
Friends at Randolph High School said Defreitas recently came to America from Brazil. He played on the high school’s soccer team.
“He has a great personality. Everytime I’m with him it’s always good vibes and just for this to happen, it’s a total shock, it’s heartbreaking,” said friend and teammate Kidino Jones.
Police said there was no signs of trauma on Defreitas’ body. No foul play is suspected.
