(WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A 35-year-old man from the Rockford area was missing since May 29, and now authorities say his body has been found in the Little Calumet River in Blue Island — and he was murdered.

Cause of death for Carl Gordon: multiple gunshot wounds, a homicide.

There was a Facebook page set up to try to help find Gordon, who lived in Belvidere. His friends and loved ones, including his mother, asked for help in finding him.

He was last seen May 29.

He had taken his black Harley-Davidson to Joliet to get it serviced.

Illinois State Police say Gordon’s body was found in the Little Calumet River last Thursday.  

Carl Gordon is survived by three children and his girlfriend. A Facebook page originally set up to publicize his disappearance is now directing people to a Go Fund Me page for funeral expenses.
