LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- A Lawrence disc jockey whose friends reported him missing has been found dead on the grounds of a northeast Kansas park.

The manager of Clinton State Park told the Lawrence Journal-World that a body found Friday morning has been identified as that of 26-year-old Michael Packard.

No information was released about the cause of death, but Lawrence police spokeswoman Kim Murphree says foul play is not suspected.

Packard was last seen on New Year's Eve at The Granada Theater, where he was working the door. Friends filed a missing person report Friday morning after Packard missed his DJ shift at The Bottleneck's weekly Thursday night dance party.
