Tennessee teen missing since Saturday found dead in pond

A Tennessee teen who had been missing since Saturday was found dead in a Rogersville pond Monday, authorities said.

According to the Kingsport Times-News, a family member found the body of 16-year-old Seanquvias Maurice Howard two days after he left home with a fishing pole. The Cherokee High School student and JROTC member, who regularly took medicine to prevent seizures, did not have his medication with him at the time, officials said.

Authorities will perform an autopsy on Howard but do not suspect foul play, WVLT-TV reported.

No further information was immediately available.
