FREMONT — Conservation officers say a 15-year-old boy from Detroit has drowned at a northeastern Indiana summer camp.The state Department of Natural Resources says staff at the Howe School Summer Camp about 40 miles north of Fort Wayne noticed the boy was missing about 6 p.m. Monday. That led to a check of the shoreline of the camp's Cedar Lake, where a lifeguard found the victim's body in about 8 feet of water.

WSBT-TV reports the teenager was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The victim's name has not been released.

Howe School Summer Camp's website says the camp is for boys, ages 9 to 15.
