MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A 14-year-old boy was found dead after his body was recovered from a pond at Nature’s Villa in the Town of Sullivan Sunday morning.

Jefferson County Sheriff Paul Milbrath reported that on Saturday evening, the Sherriff’s Office received an emergency 911 call from Nature’s Villa that stated that a swimmer had gone under the water’s surface and couldn’t be located.

Fire and Rescue was immediately dispatched to the scene, and additional units were all on the scene to help as well. Rescue divers began searching shortly after 6:51 p.m. and continued to search until 9:35 p.m. that night. Searching operations then had to be suspended due to nightfall conditions.

Sunday morning the search began again with Jefferson County’s Dive Team at 7:30 a.m. They worked with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources using their underwater submersible drone equipped with sonar and camera technology.

At approximately 8:33 a.m., the 14-year-old boy was recovered.

At this time, no further information is being released.
