Posted:

BELMONT, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say an 18-year-old Milwaukee man has drowned at a campground on Lake Joy in southeastern Wisconsin.

Lafayette County Sheriff Reg Gill says deputies were dispatched to the Lake Joy Campground around 9:30 a.m. Saturday. He says rescue crews recovered the body of Sidney L. Yera Jr. just before 11 a.m. in the swimming area where he was last seen.

The sheriff's office says there doesn't appear to have been any criminal activity involved in Yera's death as the drowning was witnessed by family and friends.

An autopsy is planned.
