Exchange Student's Body Found in N.Z.

The body of a Japanese exchange student has been found in a river in Christchurch, New Zealand. 23-year-old Yasuaki Shishikura was discovered in the Heathcote River early Saturday morning. Shishikura, from Chiba prefecture, was last seen close to the river late on Friday night and is believed to have been alive when he entered the water. It is not known how he got there, but two men seen nearby are being sought by local police. Shishikura's homestay family described him as a friendly and very nice person, who was returning to Japan at the end of next month.
