FISHERS, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - The Statewide Silver Alert was canceled Sunday evening after Fishers Police discovered the car of Peyton Riekhof, the Fishers teenager who went missing on Thursday.

The Hamilton County Coroner has confirmed police suspicions that the body pulled from the SUV was Peyton Riekhof.

Police say they discovered tire tracks near the Tamenend Trace subdivision Sunday afternoon which prompted the search. Divers searched the area for several hours before discovering the car under 8-feet of water.

Riekhof was last seen Thursday morning at a gas station on 96th Street in Indianapolis after leaving a friend's house. The friend was concerned about Rikhof's state of mind and later called police.
