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.
