Washington: The body of an Indian-American student, Harsha Maddula, who mysterious disappeared over the weekend, has been found by a fisherman in a harbour.

Maddula, 18, disappeared on Saturday after he left a party near Northwestern University campus.

Maddula’s body was discovered late Thursday in a harbour in Wilmette, a town north of Evanston.

According to police officials, Harsha, who has diabetes that can leave him disoriented if he doesn`t take his medication, went out on Friday night with friends for two off-campus parties.

On Saturday, some of his friends left the second party and headed on foot to a third about a quarter-mile away.

When they arrived there, they realised that Harsha, who showed no signs of being drunk, was gone.
