PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Authorities have identified a body found Thursday at Holland State Park as missing teen Eliza Trainer.

Trainer had been missing since being swept into Lake Michigan while walking along the shore on New Year's Day.

On Thursday, deputies found her body in rocks along the north pier. Crews had to move several large boulders before they were able to recover her body.

On Friday, an autopsy determined she drowned and foul play is not suspected.
