Body of Missing Teen Believed to Have Been Found at Douglas County State Lake

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office reported it has recovered what is believed to be the body of 18-year-old Cameron Kirchner at Douglas County State Lake Wednesday afternoon.

Divers recovered a body from the water around 3 p.m. The Sheriff’s Office is waiting on a confirmation from the coroner’s office for the identity.

Kirchner and a 17-year-old male were in a small boat when it capsized Saturday night, according to DGSO. The 17-year-old male, unidentified at this time, returned to shore that night while Kirchner did not. Neither are believed to have been wearing lifejackets at the time. The boat was recovered by divers Monday afternoon.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, Missouri Highway Patrol, along with DGSO have been searching the water since Saturday night.
