Authorities say a body pulled from a Gilbert canal has been identified as missing teenager.

The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office on Thursday identified the body as that of Maxwell Flancer.

His mother reported him missing Tuesday night after Flancer never showed up at his father's home, located about a mile from the canal.

The teen's mother found his hat floating in the canal Wednesday afternoon and called authorities.

A county sheriff's dive team used an underwater robot with a camera and sonar to locate the body.

Gilbert police say the cause of death hasn't been determined yet and the case remains under investigation.
