Divers Searching Temple Lake For Missing Belton HS Student
Police received a call at 1:30pm this afternoon about a Belton High School student who went under water at Temple Lake Park and never surfaced. The missing Belton High Senior was with a group of friends on Senior Skip Day who called police after they saw him go under the water, and never re-surface.
Morgan's Point Resort and Temple Police searched the area, and the boys body was recovered at about 3:15pm today.
This is the second Belton High School student to pass away in the past few days. Belton High sophomore AJ Howard passed away over the weekend as a result of a traffic accident at Highway 317 and FM 2483 in Temple.
Belton High School Principal Chris Dubois said Howards passing was "an incredible loss for the Belton High School community".
Our prayers go out to both families, and everyone involved in both tragic accidents.
