Young teen missing in Caddo Lake

CADDO PARISH, La. (KTAL) - Caddo Parish Sheriff’s deputies and Caddo Parish Fire District No. 8 are on the scene of a tragic boating accident in which a fourteen-year-old boy is missing.

According to witnesses, four teen-age boys were in an aluminum boat in Caddo Lake just off Highway 1, south of Rodessa (Black Bayou) earlier this evening when it capsized and sent all the teens into the water.

One of them went under, and though the others tried to pull him up, they were unsuccessful.

The Caddo Marine Unit is searching the lake for the missing teen at this hour, and agents with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries are also at the scene.

Although the boy’s name is being withheld, his parents are at the Lake with the rescue agencies. NBC6 has a crew on the scene and will bring details as they unfold.
