Police confirmed a body recovered from waters near M&T Bank Stadium was that of a 21-year-old man reported missing from southern Baltimore last week.

The body of Vashon Christopher was found in the water off of the 300 block of Stockholm St. on Monday afternoon, police said. Images circulated on Facebook said Christopher had been last seen on Aug. 10 around Westport, and police said he had been formally reported missing on Aug. 15.

Police did not release any details about whether investigators observed trauma or suspect foul play.

The bodies of 13 people have been recovered from the waters in and around the Inner Harbor since October 2013.
