Brandon Crisp, the 15-year-old boy who has become known in the press as the "missing gamer," has been discovered dead after a huge police search. The boy ran away from home after he was banned by his parents from playing Call of Duty.

According to CP24, the body was discovered on Fifth Line in the Barrie area. The police are yet to officially state that the body is of Crisp, but Sgt. Dave Goodbrand of the Barrie Police strongly believes it to be the boy. The police of course won't confirm anything until Pathology have done what they need to do. 

Some claims are being made that hunters discovered Brandon's body, but that is also unconfirmed. It's not clear exactly how the body was found yet.
