The body of a 16-year-old boy who drowned in an Arkansas swim area was recovered Sunday, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.
Sgt. Shannon Jenkins, spokesman for the Benton County sheriff's office, confirmed the teen was swimming at the Prairie Creek swim area and drowned.
The dive team for the sheriff's office recovered the teen's body, Jenkins said.
Authorities later identified the teen as Raymond Vaughns. He was a sophomore at Bentonville High School who joined the school district in January, according to Leslee Wright, the district's director of communications.
