NEW YORK (CNN) – The body of an eighth-grade student has been found in Pennsylvania.

On Wednesday, 13-year-old Cayman Naib’s parents reported him missing.

“We think that he got an email from school and was upset by it and left as an impulsive act,” Farid Naib, Cayman’s father, wrote on a Facebook page. “We have spoken to his friends and they do not know where he is. Cayman does have his phone, we don’t know if he has any cash, he does not have his wallet.”

His family said that his phone was dead at the time of his disappearance.

“Cayman left within 30 minutes after he received an email from school regarding overdue homework (we do not blame the school) and most probably did not do any preplanning… He is a good kid, and has no substance abuse or other issues, this is the first time he has ever done anything like this,” his father and mother, Becky Naib, posted on Friday.

While hundreds of people searched for the teen, the family posted pleas on Facebook.

“Cayman, if you read this please know that you are forgiven for everything, and I mean everything, you have the ultimate free pass. Just come home, we are so worried about you,” they said.

On Sunday, Cayman’s body was found 150 yards from his home.

Officials say he didn’t have any signs of trauma to his body but was found under the snow in a “sleeping position.”
