Florida Boy, Darius Swain, 13, Found Dead Behind Area Walmart Two Days After He's Reported Missing!

A Florida family is heartbroken today after a 13-year-old boy was found dead .

Darius Swain had been reported missing by his family just two days before. According to WTXL, Swain was last seen off of West Tennessee Street and Blountstown Highway Friday afternoon. His family says he left walking for the Family Dollar at 2:30 p.m. but never came back.

Search dogs tracked his scent to the nearby Dunkin' Donuts where a search party formed.

Saturday night, family friends and concerned community members searched for the teen who was visiting his father from Sanford; and on Sunday afternoon, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued a Missing Child Alert for the missing 13-year-old.

On Sunday night, the body of a young male was found behind a Walmart and the Tallahassee Police Department did confirm that they were conducting a death investigation in the 4400 block of West Tennessee Street where a male juvenile was found deceased at midnight.

Swain's mother and aunt told news outlets that the remains that were found are indeed his. The investigators involved in the case are said to be working toward positively identifying the body. They do not expect any foul play at this time.

Our hearts and prayers go out to this family.
