LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Authorities recovered the body of a missing 13-year-old boy in Clinton Lake in the Lawrence area.
Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Kristen Channel says the Jayion Harris-Jordan went underwater Thursday while swimming near the outlet at the lake and never resurfaced.
Crews began to search for the teen before 7 p.m. Thursday.
Multiple agencies and a helicopter searched for the boy until darkness fell, and resumed their search Friday morning, recovering the body from the Clinton Outlet.
The sheriff’s office said it would not release any more information about the drowning.
Jayion was a student at Lawrence’s Liberty Memorial Central Middle School.
