JEFF DAVIS COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

Cowboys on a Jeff Davis County ranch found the body of a young boy believed to be from Guatemala.

The Jeff Davis Mountain Dispatch says that on Christmas Eve, the 14 or 15-year-old boy is believed to be part of a larger group of Guatemalans that had traveled through the area earlier in December.

Searches for the boy had been going on for about a week.

He was found just a short distance away from a ranch house.

An autopsy performed in El Paso confirmed that he died from exposure.
