The Saginaw Spirit team confirmed in a statement tonight that Michigan state police have found the body of Terry Trafford. 

The 20-year-old player went missing after leaving his team's home arena on March 3rd. 

Police had been looking for his green 1995 GMC Sierra pickup truck, which police tell local media was located behind a local Walmart this afternoon. Police say they found a body inside the vehicle. 

Before he disappeared, Trafford had been sent home by the team for a disciplinary reason, something his girlfriend told The Saginaw News had left him devastated. His parents were expecting him back home in Toronto. 

Here is the full statement from Saginaw Spirit: 

It is with very heavy hearts that we announce that late this afternoon we were informed by the Michigan State Police that the body of Terry Trafford has been found.

Our deepest condolences are with Terry’s family and his friends both in Ontario and Michigan. Terry played on our team and was a member of the Spirit family for the last four years and he will be missed.

We have reached out to Terry’s parents and will look to provide them with support over the coming days. In addition, we met with team players and staff this evening, along with our Team Chaplain.

On behalf of the Spirit we would like to thank the police who were looking for Terry, the media for providing updates and all who provided information. The coming days will be difficult and we will endeavor to keep the community and media apprised of arrangements and other details.
