France 3/Scoop, Apr 27

Hérault divers and specialised forces have been investigating since 6pm on Thursday, when a body was seen floating in the Orb near Cessenon-sur-Orb. The identity of the victim is not known, but it could be the 19 year-old who disappeared on 17 April.

Witnesses claimed they saw a man sinking in the water on 17 April, and despite a large team of rescue workers, the body was not found. 

Update: reports later confirmed that the body found was indeed the body of the missing 19 year old. Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of the young man, while police endeavour to make sense of the incident.
