CHICAGO (WLS) -- A body pulled from the Chicago River earlier this month was identified this week as a 22-year-old Chicago drum liner who was reported missing in February, friends and authorities confirmed.

Julian Peavy, of the city's West Side, was a drum liner with the Exodus Drum and Bugle Corps for six years, his friend Andres Flowers said. He was last seen in January leaving practice and getting onto a train.

Peavy was found in the river on March 3 in the 2800-block of South Eleanor in the Pilsen neighborhood, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
