The Hennepin County medical examiner has identified a body found in the Mississippi River in Minneapolis this week as that of a missing University of Minnesota student.

The body of David Michael Miller, 20, of St. Peter, Minn., was pulled from the river north of the Ford Parkway Bridge just before 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The medical examiner did not issue a ruling on how Miller died.

An investigation continues.

The third-year bioscience major was last seen leaving Wilkins Hall, a student dormitory in the northwest corner of the U campus, near Dinkytown, about 9 p.m. May 10.

“This is a difficult and sad time for our University community,” Danita Brown Young, vice provost for student affairs, wrote in a prepared statement.

Counseling will be available to students and staff at Boynton Health Service from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

A university 24/7 crisis line can be reached at 612-301-4673.
