Austin Houser, missing Ohio teen, found dead along roadside

A 15-year-old Ohio boy missing since Thursday has been found dead from an apparent hit-and run incident.

The Logan County Sheriff’s Office said Austin Houser’s body was found in a roadside ditch Saturday night north of Rushsylvania (about an hour west of Columbus). He was student at Ben Logan High School.

Deputies believe he was struck by a vehicle that then fled.

 Authorities said they had recovered the vehicle they suspect was involved and were working with the prosecutor’s office on the investigation.

The Columbus Dispatch reports a school bus driver said he dropped off the boy at his house after school on Thursday. His mother Ellenna reported him missing.
