WALLER COUNTY, TX (KAUZ) - The body of a Prairie View A&M student who was missing out of the Houston area was found Friday.

The Waller County Sheriff's Office said they found 20-year-old Tristan Houston's body in a wooded area of Waller County.

The Prairie View A&M student was reported missing earlier this week by his family.

The sheriff's office posted to Facebook on Friday evening saying, it was "a tragic end to a young life."

They also said one suspect is in custody. Deputies said the suspect is a senior at Prairie View A&M University.

Houston's body has been sent for an autopsy.
