Port Clinton police say the body of a teenager missing for more than three weeks was found Tuesday in the chimney of a vacant home in his neighborhood.

Police Chief Rob Hickman says 14-year-old Harley Dilly likely crawled up an outside antenna to gain access to the chimney, then became stuck inside: 

Volunteers along with state and local have been searching for Dilly since he was last seen leaving home for school on the morning of December 20. Hickman says there were no signs of foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
