The body of a California exchange student missing since last month in Spain has been found in the Madrid River, officials announced. An autopsy will be conducted, but there doesn't appear to be signs of foul play, according to authorities. San Diego State University student Austin Bice, 22, vanished after he left a nightclub more than a week ago. He was found in a section of the river nearby, AP reports. Bice was studying international business. His father flew to Spain last week to join in the search, and praised local police for their diligence. Click for more. (More Austin Bice stories.)
