MARYSVILLE, Wash. — Authorities say the body of a 16-year-old Everett boy was pulled from a Marysville lake where he was believed to be swimming with a friend.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office says witnesses thought the boy was encumbered in weeds in the water.

Someone swimming with him realized he had not made it to shore.
