Authorities in northwestern Indiana say a 15-year-old boy was found dead from a dirt bike crash after he didn't return home from visiting a friend.

 The Porter County Sheriff's Department says officers checking bike trails found Vincent Canzoneri about a half mile from his home before dawn Sunday. The Times of Munster reports (http://bit.ly/16Zi0fU ) he was pronounced dead at the scene and his dirt bike was discovered in the brush near a tree that had been struck.

 Police say Vincent left his home in a rural area a few miles from Valparaiso Saturday night and that his mother reported him missing early Sunday.
