The community mourns the loss of 11-year-old Anthony Kuznia Thursday night. After more than 27 hours of searching, authorities recovered Anthony's body from the Red River around 4:30 Thursday afternoon.

Police say they recovered Anthony Kuznia's body at the bottom of the Red River where the water was about 15 feet deep. Police say they weren't sure how long Anthony's body had been there, but that he was probably just exploring and slipped in.

Police say this is still an open investigaion. The body has been taken to the Grand Forks coroners office for an autoposy, which police say will happen in the next day or so. Depending on the autopsy results, police may or may not need to do a criminal investigation, but they say at this pount there's no indication that there was any foul play.
