Christopher James Owens, a 15-year-old Bristow boy missing since Saturday, was found dead Monday afternoon.

Police confirmed his death, but have not yet released any details.

""At this time, we can say that we have found him and he is no longer with us,"" Christopher's family wrote on a Facebook page set up to help find him. ""The family asks for you all to respect their privacy at this time. Once again, thank you all for your support.""

Christopher was last seen Saturday at his home on Banchory Circle.

Police said they believe Christopher left voluntarily, possibly riding a family ATV.

His death is the fourth this weekend involving Prince William County teens. On Saturday afternoon, two 17-year-old Woodbridge teens were found dead in a minivan in Dale City. Also this weekend, a 17-year-old Osbourn Park High School student died in a suspected suicide at his home.
