Body of US College Student Missing in Spain Found

ABC News(MADRID) -- The body of Austin Bice, a U.S. exchange student who went missing late last month in Spain, was found in a river in Madrid Tuesday, according to Spanish police.

The 22-year-old's body was discovered in the Manzanares River, close to the nightclub where he was last seen on Feb. 26.  No signs of foul play were seen on the body.  The cause of Bice's death is still not known.

Bice, an international business major at San Diego State University, went to Madrid in mid-January to spend the semester studying at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.

He posted on his blog that he planned to attend a concert the night he disappeared.  Friends say that Bice left them outside of the nightclub that was hosting the concert to walk to his host family's home.

Initial reports said that Bice was denied entrance into the club because he was too drunk.  Friends and family have strongly denied that claim.
