NORWICH, Connecticut — Police say they have found the body of a teenager who had gone missing in Norwich after his kayak flipped over last week on the Shetucket River.

A police lieutenant says the body of 17-year-old Karl Joseph was discovered Sunday afternoon close to where the boat had capsized.

Joseph had been kayaking with two friends around 10 p.m. on May 3 when his boat flipped over. His empty kayak was found about 300 feet north of the Greeneville Dam.

Joseph was a junior at Norwich Free Academy.
