RICHWOOD, Ohio (AP) - Police say an 18-year-old youth drowned while swimming with his friends in Richwood Lake in central Ohio.

Richwood police Lt. Marcus Ballinger says police responded to a call of a possible drowning at Richwood Lake beach about 4:15 p.m. Friday. Ballinger says police were told the teen was swimming with friends but was not a good swimmer and had gone underwater, come up but then gone down again.

Rescue crews and a dive team were called and a search began.

Ballinger says divers found the body of Conrad Mangus about 5:45 p.m. in about 10 feet of water about 20 yards off shore. He says Mangus was from the Richwood area and a North Union student who was attending a vocational-technical school.
