ST. PAUL, Minn.-- St. Paul police say no one will be charged with providing alcohol to a University of St. Thomas freshman who disappeared and drowned in the Mississippi River.

Police reports say Daniel Zamlen of Eveleth had been drinking before he went to a house party and brought alcohol with him. The reports say Zamlen drank from a keg of beer at the party.

Zamlen was just four days shy of his 19th birthday when he disappeared while walking home from the party last April. His body was found in the Mississippi nearly a month later.

Autopsy results released in June show Zamlen accidentally drowned but his parents contend their son was abducted.
