The dead body found Wednesday in Mason Creek has been identified as 18-year-old Sage Thompson, who was reported missing in October.
Nampa Police have not disclosed Thompson’s cause or manner of death. Thompson, of Nampa, was found around 11:16 a.m. in the 1000 block of 3rd Avenue after a city worker spotted his body caught in the creek’s debris trap.
At the time Thompson was reported missing, detectives said they did not know what happened to the teen. None of his bank cards were used after his disappearance.
“We don’t have any new information on Sage at all,” Sgt. Tim Riha said in December. “We wish we did.”
Thompson was last seen Oct. 2 in the area of 16th Avenue North and Stampede Drive. His family offered a $10,000 reward for information that would help find him.
Authorities as of December didn’t believe there was a connection between Thompson’s disappearance and Bruce Marchant, who was suspected of killing Boise State University student Sierra Bush.
