CENTERVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Authorities in Hickman County say a teen reported missing and endangered has been found dead by suicide.

Kevin Dunn, 17, was last seen around 6 a.m. Tuesday. He reportedly did not show up for school.

The last known contact with Dunn was around 7 a.m. via text message. Investigators said this is very uncharacteristic of Dunn.

Hickman County Sheriff Randall Ward said Dunn was ultimately found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the crawlspace of his family's home.

Dunn's body will be sent for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.
