BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) — Authorities in Jackson County have recovered the body of a 16-year-old boy from the Black River hours after he went missing while fishing and swimming with a friend.
Members of the Sheriff's Dive Team recover the boy's body at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday. He had been reported missing at about 7 p.m. Saturday night.
Authorities said the river was running high and strong due to recent rains in the area. The victim was found about 30 feet from shore in waters about 8 feet deep.
The victim's name has not been released.
