SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) – Authorities say a juvenile has died while swimming and paddle boarding with friends at a neighborhood lake in suburban Kansas City.

The teenager has been identified as 17-year-old Treyvon Mays. He was a senior at Shawnee Mission Northwest High School.

Shawnee police said in a news release that officers were called Tuesday to Lakeview Estates after the victim went missing. The release said the victim’s friends weren’t sure if he left or if he was still in the water because they didn’t see him go under.

A search began, and a dive team found the boy’s body. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
