The more than two week search for a 17-year-old Missouri teen ended tragically after local fisherman discovered his car in a nearby lake. According to officials, the body found inside the car is that of Wade Lurk.
Police say they were called to the lake after fisherman spotted a car matching the description of Wade's. The car was pulled from Goose Creek Lake near Ste. Genevieve, where Wade was last seen at a party. The car is the same model and color as Wade Lurk's white 1990 Nissan Stanza, and the license plate numbers also matched, officials say.
Police say Wade's disappearance and death appear to be a tragic accident, but they are continuing to pursue all avenues.
