TOWN OF BARNES, Wis. (AP) - Authorities in northern Wisconsin say a teenage girl has died in an all-terrain vehicle rollover.

The Bayfield County sheriff’s office says the 14-year-old left her home in the Town of Barnes on the ATV Tuesday. She was reported missing around 10 p.m.

Crews searched for the girl in the Barnes area. Sheriff’s deputies found her body around 4 a.m. Wednesday on an unmarked logging road about two miles from her home.

Authorities say the girl was wearing a helmet and apparently had lost control of her ATV on a curve that had standing water from rain.

The name of the girl was not immediately released.
