Unidentified body found; father of missing UF student to help police

CEDAR KEY, Fla. (AP) -

The father of a missing University of Florida student is helping investigators determine whether a body found in rural Levy County is that of his son.

Gainesville Police say they are assisting the Levy County Sheriff's Office with the discovery and processing of a human body found Friday in Cedar Key. Police declined to release further information.

The Miami Herald reports (http://tinyurl.com/8ztfr6e) that Carlos Aguilar is traveling from Miami to meet with investigators. He says police told him they have a body that matches his son, 18-year-old Christian Aguilar, who was last seen in a Gainesville Best Buy store with his friend, 18-year-old Pedro Bravo. Bravo was charged with first-degree murder. Police say Bravo told them he beat Aguilar unconscious and left him in a parking lot.
