ROME — John Cabot University in Rome says the body of missing Wisconsin student Beau Solomon has been found in the Tiber River.

The 19-year-old from Spring Green, Wisconsin, went missing in the early hours of Friday after being with some friends in a pub shortly after he arrived for an exchange program.

"We express our most heartfelt condolences to the Solomon family and to all those who loved Beau," said a statement from the Rome-based English-language university.

Solomon had just completed his first year as a personal finance major at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
