A police spokesman in Bermuda says authorities have found a body amid a search for a U.S. student who disappeared after a rugby tournament on the British island territory.

Spokesman Dwayne Caines did not disclose any details about the discovery and did not confirm that the body was that of 19-year-old Mark Dombroski.

The Bermuda Police Service said a news conference would be held later Monday.

Authorities and members of Dombroski’s family had been searching Bermuda for the young man in a wooded area known as The Arboretum. It was near a sports center where Dombroski was competing as a member of the rugby team at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.

He was last seen early Sunday after a night of socializing.
