The father of an Arizona teenager whose body was found near his abandoned SUV in the woods of southern Oregon said his son was "a young man who had a broken heart."

The body of Johnathan Croom, 18, was found Monday evening about 1,000 feet from where his vehicle was found abandoned last week, Douglas County sheriff's spokesman Dwes Hutson said in a statement.
