BURTON, Mich. (AP) - An agency that managed the foster care case of a 9-year-old autistic boy whose body was found in a Genesee County lake has closed.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services says Alternatives for Children and Families of Burton agreed to surrender its license after an investigation found rules violations in its oversight of foster care placements.

Violations included inadequate training of foster parents.

The investigation followed the July 2015 death of Omarion Humphrey. The boy’s body was found in a small lake after disappearing several days earlier during a gathering with his foster family at a Flint-area park.

An attorney who had represented Alternatives for Children and Families said Thursday that he no longer is retained by the agency and is unable to comment on the license issue.
