Baltimore County Police reported to the scene of a wooded area behind the 300 block of Bigley Avenue around 2:00 pm on Sunday when they discovered the body of a 17-year-old boy.

According to police, 17-year-old Anthony Treon Assante Williams was reported missing on November 11 by his mother. She told police that her son left the home two days earlier without telling anyone where he was going. She also told police that it wasn't unusual for her son to leave for a day, but he always comes back home.

Officers say their investigations do not indicate foul play.

Police are awaiting a pending autopsy from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death.
