Emergency officials have pulled up what they believe to be the body of a teenager who was reported missing at a Rhode Island state park.

A search was underway at about 8:30 p.m. Sunday for the 18-year-old male in Olney Pond at Lincoln Woods State Park. Dive crews pulled his body out shortly before 9:30 p.m. near a rope line used to restrict how far swimmers can go from the beach.

Officials say the teen was swimming with two friends who noticed he was missing after they swam to shore. Authorities didn't immediately identify the victim.

Authorities are currently investigating but don't suspect foul play.
