Imperial County Deputy Coroner Steve Green says the body found on Sunday is that of missing teen David Yglesias, III.
The 14-year-old has been reported missing for over a month.
Hundreds of Imperial county residents as well as various law enforcement agencies participated in an organized search just a day before his body was found.
Yglesias' father says he discovered a note his son left behind saying the world wasn't a nice place and he didn't think he could make it.
Celia Arguilez discovered Yglesias' body on her property on Ralph Road just a short distance from the Yglesias home.
Imperial police continue their investigation regarding a gun that was near Yglesias' body.
The father's .22 caliber rifle was missing when Yglesias went missing.
