DETROIT (AP) — A cause of death could be determined Friday for a 13-year-old Detroit boy who was abducted while riding a bike along a city street.

The Wayne County medical examiner’s office is scheduled to perform an autopsy on the body of Deontae Mitchell, which was found Thursday in a vacant lot.

Deontae disappeared Tuesday night while riding bikes with a cousin, who told police that Deontae had picked up money dropped by a man who was urinating outside a market.

Video shows Deontae being pursued by a man who grabbed the boy by his arm and forced him into a car. Police believe that man was 45-year-old Gregory Walker, who was arrested Thursday with a woman in Toledo, Ohio.

A second man also was arrested Thursday in Detroit.
