WEST BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

Authorities say searchers at a suburban Detroit lake have found the body of a teenage boy who jumped from a boat to swim in the middle of the night and didn't resurface.

Rescuers including a dive team responded shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday at Middle Straits Lake in Oakland County's West Bloomfield Township.

Police say the boy's body was found about 9 a.m. after several hours of searching.

Police say the boy was among a group of 16 and 17 year olds on the boat. They called 911 when he didn't resurface. The boy's name wasn't immediately released.
