CALEXICO, Calif. (13 On Your Side) - We have just learned the father of a Calexico teenager who drowned in the All-American canal may have found his son's body.

The Imperial County Coroner's Office tells 13 On Your Side Damian Placencia's father discovered a body in the All-American Canal near the new river, two-and-a-half miles from where his son drowned June 9th.

As we first reported Placencia was swimming with his friends when the current pulled him under.

Since then, city officials along with Border Patrol cadaver dogs and a sheriff's dive team searched several times for Placencia's body.

An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow to detrmine if the badly decomposed body is Placencia.
