CHEEKTOWAGA, NY (WKBW) - Police are investigating a "suspicious" scene in Cheektowaga after a body was found along a creek bed on Monday afternoon.

Police will not say who made the discover during the noon hour near Clinton Street and Harlem Road.

"At this point the placing of the body is very suspicious," said Cheektowaga Police Chief David Zach.

"We haven't ruled anything in or out at this particular point," he added.

The body is described as male in his late teens or early 20's. Police said they are looking into the possibility that the body is that of a man from Depew who was reported missing on Friday.
