Ra Ra Riot drummer found dead
The body of Ra Ra Riot drummer John Pike has been found.

Pike, 23, went missing after leaving a party in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The band played a show in Providence, RI on Friday night and afterwards attended the party in Fairhaven, MA. Pike left the party at 3am.

The search began on foot and by air yesterday around 4pm.

Pike's cell phone was later found in shallow water on a beach about half a mile from the house where the party took place, according to local Fire Chief Tim Francis.

This morning the search was extended, with divers searching the waters in the area.

The body was found around 4pm this afternoon (June 3) in seven feet of water in Buzzards Bay, about 200 yards from where his cell phone was discovered.
