Locator: Sanford, FL All hopes of finding 19 year old Cory Erving alive were dashed Thursday when authorities pulled his missing car from a pond near his home. Inside the car they discovered a lifeless body.

SOT: Don Eslinger/Seminole County Sheriff

"The body does in fact fit the description of Cory Erving, including clothing."
The 19 year old disappeared on May 28th. He never came back from what was supposed to be a short trip to the store to buy some bread. Because of Cory's past history of substance abuse and run ins with the law, authorities initially suspected foul-play, but a preliminary investigation now leads them to believe otherwise.

SOT: Don Eslinger/Seminole County Sheriff

"There is a possibility that this was an accident."
The Ervings went public with their son's disappearance on June 13th. The basketball legend appeared on various national media outlets pleading for any information about his son and never giving up hope.

SOT: Julius Irving

"We have not put that ultimate on the table but we've talked about the scenarios."
An autopsy will be performed later today. In the meantime, the Ervings can begin grieving for a son they prayed would one day come home. Steve Dunlop, CBS News, New York.
