DULUTH, Minn. (AP) – The body of a missing Duluth teen has been recovered in Lake Superior.

The Duluth News Tribune reports the St. Louis County Search and Rescue Team recovered on Sunday the body of 13-year-old Jefferson Bowen Jr.

Bowen was swept away while swimming in the rain-swollen Lester River on Tuesday afternoon.

A recreational boater reported what they believed to be a body in the water about 1:40 p.m.

Officials responded and recovered the body about one-quarter mile from shore and nearly 2 miles from the mouth of the Lester River.
