— A Highway Patrol helicopter spotted the body of a missing 19-year-old Saturday afternoon.

Gregg Davis and three other teens were diving into the Roanoke River Wednesday when Davis disappeared. He did not resurface, authorities said.

The helicopter found him near a dam where he was last seen. Davis was from Valentines, Va. He attended Virginia Tech and was on campus when a gunman killed 30 students, faculty members and himself on April 16.

The other teens were not injured.
