The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office says a body pulled from the water of Montrose Harbor Thursday night is that of 35-year-old Talmadge Channel, an Uptown man missing since last week.

Chicago police divers began searching the water after a pair of pants was found near the harbor's edge. They later found the body and said it appeared to be that of a missing 35-year-old man from the 4400-block of North Malden.

The medical examiner's office plans to conduct an autopsy to determine a cause of death.

Police pulled the man's body from Montrose Harbor about 8:20 p.m. He had been reported missing since March 2.
