Authorities have found the body of a missing Southern Illinois University student.

The ABC affiliate near Carbondale reports police found 19 year-old Pravin Varughese's body in a wooded area of the city today.

He
was last seen last Wednesday night leaving a house party in Carbondale.

Police say the sophomore got a ride from an acquaintance. The two got into an argument and Varughese got out of the car and went toward the woods.

Officers say they believe rough terrain and low temperatures may have contributed to him not being able to find his way out of the woods.

An autopsy has been scheduled.
