Police in the canton of Bern on Monday launched a bid for help from the public after the body of a 15-year-old boy was found in the woods near Köniz.


The victim, a Swiss resident of the canton, was discovered in the Büschiwald, south of the city of Bern, on Sunday, police said.

Investigators are looking in to the cause of his death.
