Body found in Cedar River; appears to be missing UI student

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Searchers looking for a missing University of Iowa student say they have found a body near the Cedar River.  The man's identity has not been confirmed by police but volunteers with a search party looking for Jacques Similhomme say it appears to be him.  Similhomme was last seen Sept. 28 in Cedar Rapids.  His car was found abandoned in Cedar Rapids two days later with his laptop, cell phone and wallet still inside.  Volunteers met Saturday morning at Ellis Park to try to find Similhomme.  

An autopsy is pending to determine cause of death and positively identify the body. Authorities aren't saying if foul play is suspected
