MIRAMAR, Fla. – The body found Tuesday in Miramar matches the description of a missing high school student, police say, though investigators are still waiting for official confirmation from the county’s medical examiner.
Police were searching for 18-year-old Dwight Grant on Tuesday when they found bloodstains and eventually a body in bushes outside an apartment complex in the 2200 block of Sherman Circle, near South University and Miramar Boulevard.
Grant, a student at Miramar High School, was reported missing Sunday.
Police said they have now ended their search.
“There are several entrances into this apartment complex and it wasn’t until a particular officer that was canvassing the area located a small amount of bloodstains that led him to this body,” said Tania Rues, a Miramar police public information officer.
Grant’s family and friends, who had been passing out flyers in an attempt to find him, showed up and the scene late Tuesday and expressed concern about the missing teenager.
