After he went missing for weeks, the body of former NFL wide receiver James Hardy III was found in a Fort Wayne, Ind., river Wednesday.

A worker for the city of Fort Wayne reported a body in Maumee River, the Allen County Coroner announced Thursday, June 8. An autopsy on the 31-year-old has been completed and an investigation is ongoing into the cause and manner of death.

Hardy’s family reported him missing May 30, and the Fort Wayne Police Department says his body was found entangled in a log jam, having been in the water for several days.

A native of Indiana, Hardy played for Indiana University before being drafted by the Buffalo Bills in 2008, where he played for two seasons. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens in 2010 before being released that same year after experiencing hamstring issues.

Hardy was sent to a mental institution in 2014 after he was deemed not competent to stand trial on resisting arrest charges.
