DETROIT - A cause of death could be determined Friday for a 13-year-old Detroit boy who was abducted while riding his bike.

The Wayne County medical examiner's office performed an autopsy on the body of Deontae Mitchell, which was found Thursday in a field on the city's east side.

The cause of death is pending. There was no indication of gunshot wounds.

Deontae disappeared Tuesday night while riding bikes with a cousin, who told police that Deontae had picked up money dropped by a man who was urinating outside Nino's Market on East Warren Avenue. 

Video shows Deontae being pursued by a man who grabbed the boy by his arm and forced him into a car. Police believe that man was 45-year-old Gregory Walker, who was arrested Thursday with a woman in Toledo, Ohio.

Portis, 51, was taken into custody Friday morning.
