RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - It's been one year since the disappearance of VCU student Jonny Dorey.

A spokesman for VCU Police says the investigation is still open.

Last September, Dorey's parents planted a tree on the VCU campus in their son's memory. They believe he was depressed and committed suicide by drinking a bottle of gin and jumping into the James River.

His belongings were recovered from the dock near Rocketts Landing, but his body was never found.
