Officers recovered the body of a missing 17-year-old boy in a wooded area near his home yesterday afternoon.

Anthony Treon Assante Williams of the 400 block of Bigley Avenue, 21227 was first reported missing by his mother on November 11. She reported that he'd been depressed recently and left abruptly without saying where he was going two days earlier. She told police that it wasn't unusual for him to leave for a day, but he always returned. This time was different.

Officers were called to a wooded area to the rear of the 300 block of Bigley Avenue just after 2 p.m. yesterday when someone walking nearby discovered the body. The cause and manner of death are pending autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner but the preliminary investigation does not indicate foul play.
