Boise Police briefed media today that the Ada County Coroner's office has tentatively identified the body found in the New York Canal yesterday as that of 8-year-old Robert Manwill, who's been missing since July 24.

Dental records will provide the final positive identification of the body.

In a release sent out his afternoon, Deputy Chief Jim Kerns said that "Finding Robert will not be the end… but the beginning of an entirely new investigation."
