    More than 500 lined the football field at Fleming County High School, for a vigil in honor of 15 year-old Ricky Hamilton, only a few hours after his body was found in a quarry not more than a half mile from his home.

    Kentucky State Police say they found the body at 1:11pm on Tuesday.

    Investigators ruled the death, accidental and say it will be at least a few more days until the autopsy results come back, to determine when exactly Hamilton died.

    At the vigil, those that knew Hamilton say he was a funny and caring boy, who was always there for his friends and teammates.

   The teen had been missing since Saturday, when police say he and his father split up on a hunting trip in the Tilton area of Fleming County...but Hamilton didn't come back.

   Search teams canvassed the area for nearly three days.

   Hamilton's family were unavailable for comment on Tuesday.

   No funeral arraignments have been made yet.
