While nothing has been confirmed, sources are saying a body found in the East River may be Richard Ng, a Columbia senior missing since last week. A boater spotted a body floating near the South Street Seaport yesterday afternoon, and the police's harbor unit picked it up. There was no "obvious trauma" to the body, but the medical examiner's office will perform an autopsy today. The Post says relatives will also be asked to identify the body today, though Ng's mother told Daily News they hadn't received any updates from the police yet. Ng's computer showed he looked up the Brooklyn Bridge, and his Metrocard was used at the Broadway and West 72nd Street subway station, raising the possibility he was headed downtown.

Ng, who had been missing since May 7, would have graduated today. There was a moment of silence for him at Columbia's School of Engineering and Applied Science's ceremony.
