The body of Jerold Joseph Williams, the 5-year-old who went missing from a campsite near the Grand Canyon last week, has been found, The Associated Press reports.

The Coconino County Sheriff's Office did not immediately release other details.

The young boy disappeared from a group of about 20 people on Thursday when he left their campsite in search of grasshoppers. Hundreds of searchers spend the last five days looking for the Colorado City native.

Members of the volunteer search party worked through heavy rain on Monday, hoping to find clues that would lead them to the boy.

According to AP, authorities reported no signs of foul play or abduction.
