A teacher found the body of a 14-year-old boy behind Clarke Elementary School on Fort Hood, Texas, on Tuesday, post officials said in a news release.

The parents of the student had reported him missing earlier in the day, along with a weapon from the home, the news release said.

The school was placed on lockdown briefly while police responded to the scene, a Fort Hood spokesman told Army Times.

The lockdown was lifted after police determined there was no threat to the public or to the students at the school, and the school returned to normal activities, according to the news release.

Officials did not say publicly how the boy had died. His name was not released on Tuesday.

Criminal Investigation Command is investigating the incident.
