COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. - Police have not yet determined whether a body found in Colonial Heights is that of a missing teenager. The body was discovered  in the 700 block of Old Town Drive, according to a Colonial Heights Facebook post.

"The identity of the deceased has not been confirmed at this time," the post indicated. "Police are working with The Office of the Medical Examiner to determine if this is the missing person reported last week."

Colonial Heights Police issued a missing person alert on August 1 for Anthony Delconte. Delconte, who police described as a juvenile, was last seen leaving his Colonial Heights home on July 30.

"He did not show up for work that day and has not been in contact with his family since," police said. " He was last seen wearing black shorts and a black tank top. Please share this picture to help locate him."

Anyone with information is asked to call Colonial Heights Police Department at 804-520-9300.

    Not calling the ball. But the horse, meth, molly and weed have long been controlling the heights. For some reason, the heights won’t take an over priced dog through the schools as a daily sweep. Inexcusable and politically motivated. Bring it!

    The Mall for Money Project has obviously brought CH down but it is not Correct to say so or discuss it.
    So hard to get the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth out of Police and Media anymore.
    Meanwhile, during long investigations, rumors abound and flourish.
