The body of a 19-year-old Nahant man was found in Boston Sunday morning, ending the frantic search for the student a day after he went missing.

Boston Police confirmed Maximillian Carbone was found dead in a wooded area off of Terrace Street just after 8 a.m. Sunday morning.

“At this stage of the investigation, detectives do not believe the victim’s death to have occurred under suspicious circumstances,” police said in a statement posted online.

Carbone, a sophomore at Wentworth Institute of Technology, was last seen between 1 and 2 a.m. Saturday morning after a night out with friends, according to Boston Police. He had been at a party on Alleghany Street near Roxbury Crossing, close to the Wentworth campus.

By 10 p.m. Saturday, Boston Police had put out the word on social media, asking for information about Carbone.
Wentworth Director of Public Safety Bill Powers told WBZ-TV that Carbone’s friends became concerned when he did not return their calls.

“There was a groundswell that happened pretty quickly,” he said.

A player on the school’s lacrosse team learned about Carbone from his father, a Boston Police officer. The team set out on a search last night, along with Carbone’s family, according to Powers.

By Sunday morning, another, larger search team had formed to scour the area and hand out fliers, but the search was soon called off after the body was found in a wooded area off of Terrace Street, which adjoins Alleghany Street.

Swampscott Public Schools released a statement offering condolences to the Carbone family.

“Our Swampscott Community is saddened by the news of the death of 2017 SHS graduate Max Carbone,” the statement said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Grief and counseling services will be available to all students and staff tomorrow at both the Middle School and High School.”
