WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (AP) - Crews have pulled the body of a 16-year-old Kentucky boy from Laurel Lake.

Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell told media that crews were called to the scene Monday after two friends jumped into the water from a cliff and one didn’t resurface. Harrell said the teen’s body was recovered near the spillway a couple of hours after the search began.

The Whitley County coroner identified the victim as Joshua Antonio Hipolito from neighboring McCreary County.
