Search for teenager whose boat capsized in Douglas County

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say efforts to find a 18-year-old boy who has been missing since a boating accident Saturday have gone from a rescue to a recovery effort.

The teenager was on a boat that capsized on the Douglas County Lake late Saturday. Another 17-year-old boy on the boat was able to surface and swim to campers, who called 911.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says a boat was found Monday afternoon but authorities haven’t determined if it is the boat the teenagers were on.

Douglas County underwater divers and the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks are helping with the search.
