WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police say an 11-year-old girl’s drowning during a church party for middle-schoolers was an accident.

Police Lt. Jason Stephens identified the girl Monday as Shelby Cramb. She was with about 100 children and several adults Sunday attending a Pathway Church function at a private home.

When the girl’s parents arrived to pick her up, she couldn’t be found. Her body was discovered in a nearby lake nearly three hours later.

Shelby was a 6th-grade student at Maize Middle School. Counselors will be available for Maize school district students.
