- Police have released new details after a group of kids found a man's body behind a home in Gwinnett County Monday afternoon. 

The victim has been identified as 21-year-old Willian Tunchez, of Lawrenceville. 

Police said a group of kids found Tunchez face-down and dead behind a home on the 2800 block of Northcliff Drive in unincorporated Suwannee.

According to police, Tunchez's father reported him missing around noon on Monday, telling officers he hadn't seen his son since Sunday around 9 p.m. The dad said his son told him he was going to visit a family member but didn't return home. 

The other family member doesn't live in the neighborhood where Tunchez's body was found. Police are trying to determine a connection between the victim and where his body was discovered. 

Tunchez's truck was found parked along the curb a few houses away from the crime scene. 

An autopsy is being conducted to determine a cause of death.
