    The body found in a wooded area of Fairfax on Monday afternoon has been identified as that of Bryan Glenn, a 17-year-old high school senior who was last seen Monday Oct. 1.

    [DC] Search for Missing Fairfax County Teen
    Police in Fairfax County search for 17-year-old Bryan Glenn who went missing after dropping his brother off at W.T. Woodson High School Monday. News4's Pat Collins reports.

    Glenn's family issued a statement saying the discovery was a "great shock" and they need to let the investigation into Glenn's death run its course.

    Sources tell News4 police do not believe his death is suspicious.

    Glenn and his brother both attended W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax, but the day Glenn disappeared, he dropped off his brother at school and kept driving, reported News4's Pat Collins.

    Surveillance video shows Glenn bought six donuts at a Dunkin' Donuts around 8 a.m., walked away and then returned to buy a bottle of water, Collins reported. His parents said they found that unusual because he already had his lunch and a bottle of water in his car.

    Glenn's car was found the following day at Thaiss Park in Fairfax. Both bottles of water were opened, and the donuts were gone. The lunch was still there.

    "It's hard for me to believe that he would go this long without contacting us," his father said Thursday.

    Police searched the area with bloodhounds, search-and-rescue teams and a helicopter. Police confirmed Monday that the area where the body was found had been searched last week and suggested rainfall may have killed the scent for bloodhounds

    The search team that discovered the body Monday was composed primarily of volunteers.
