MUHLENBERG CO., KY (WFIE) -

A tragic end to the search for a missing 13-year-old in Muhlenberg County.

The Sheriff has confirmed that Larry Caps was located in a nearby lake.

Officials say the home-schooled teen went fishing Friday morning near his home at 55 Goodview Lane in Central City, KY.

A person contacted authorities after they went outside and found the boat empty with Capp's baseball hat and boots were found in the water.

The Muhlenberg County Dive Team recovered Capp's body on Friday morning around 10:50.

The Sheriff says it looks like he just fell out of the boat, and couldn't get back in. Neighbors tell us the lake is filled with thick lillypads and mud.

The Coroner is investigating, but nothing appears suspicious at this time.

Authorities with the Sheriff's Office, Fish & Wildlife and EMA helped with the search.
