Officials say they don't yet know the cause of the death of a missing Pennsbury High School student whose body was found in Philadelphia. Spokesman Jeff Moran of the Philadelphia medical examiner's office says an autopsy has been performed on 17-year-old Blake Fulton but the cause of death is pending.

Lower Makefield Police Chief Ken Coluzzi says Fulton had last been seen last Friday. His body was found Wednesday morning outside a home in Philadelphia's Kensington section. Coluzzi says the school district in Bucks County was notified Thursday.

Fulton was entering his senior year. Despite summer vacation, the school says grief counseling is available for distressed students and parents.

Coluzzi says Fulton was known to spend time in the Kensington and Port Richmond areas and skateboarded with people in the area.
