PARIS, TX -- A person was found dead in Paris Sunday.

Police say a deceased male was found near the intersection of 10th Street NW and West Center Street. Officers say, someone discovered the body on the north side of the rail tracks in some dense underbrush. Investigators are working to make a positive identification of the individual.

The area where the body was found is close to where 18-year-old Russell Kennedy was last seen Thursday night. Officers say he did not go to school Friday and a friend became concerned after receiving a text message. Police say Kennedy's mother told them her son left Thursday night to check his work schedule, but never returned home.
