Darius Appiah, the 22-year-old son of a US-based Ghanaian pastor who went missing for 10 days has been found dead in a Fredericksburg creek, police confirmed Saturday afternoon.
He was found about 10:30 a.m. in Hazel Run during a Saturday search party organized by his family and powered by dozens of volunteers.
An autopsy will determine Appiah’s cause of death, Fredericksburg police said in a news release.
“The Fredericksburg Police Department is actively investigating Mr. Appiah’s death,” the release said.

Virginia State Police issued a critically missing adult alert for Appiah on behalf of the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 26.

After Appiah was found, the Fredericksburg Fire Department and rescue squad and the on-call city police detective responded, as did the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office.

At approximately 1:50 p.m., his body was recovered from the creek near the intersection of Blue and Grey Parkway and Lafayette Boulevard.

“The Fredericksburg Police Department sends its condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Appiah, who have remained dedicated to finding him since he went missing,” the release said.
