A teenager has drowned in East Lake Park near Lake Nona in Southeast Orlando, police say.
The 16-year-old’s body was discovered in the lake at about 4 p.m. Monday.
The teen was reported missing Sunday night and police were already in the area to follow up on that investigation when the body was found, said Master Sgt. Roger Brennan, spokesman for the Orlando Police Department.
OPD’s homicide unit is on scene investigating the drowning. The lake is in a community just west of State Road 417 off the 9700 block of Lake District Lane.
The young victim’s name will likely not be released until Tuesday. Police have not yet said how the boy drowned
