LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawrence police have called off a search for a 23-year-old University of Kansas student from Peru after finding a body matching the student's description. Gianfranco Villagomez, an industrial design student from Lima, Peru, was last seen walking near 9th and Michigan streets in Lawrence about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. His girlfriend reported him missing Saturday. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that police found a body Monday afternoon matching the description of Villagomez. Lawrence Police Department spokesman Trent McKinley says an official identification of the body has not been made. The search for Villagomez was halted Monday afternoon after police notified friends and family that a body had been found near the address where Villagomez was last seen. The county coroner is working on an official identification of the deceased.
