LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Authorities are looking for a missing 13-year-old boy in Clinton Lake in the Lawrence area.

Douglas County Sheriff's Office Lt. Kristen Channel says the boy went underwater Thursday while swimming near the outlet at the lake. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the people with the boy lost track of him.

Multiple agencies and a helicopter searched for the boy until darkness fell. Channel says the search resumed Friday as recovery effort rather than a rescue.
