Police in Lancaster County say the body of a teenager who disappeared three days ago as he tried to swim across the Susquehanna River has been found by a group of kayakers.

Susquehanna Regional police says the kayakers discovered 19-year-old Jason Howard's body Saturday morning in a shallow, rocky area of the river.

Police say the East Donegal Township teen was trying to swim across the river Wednesday night near Marietta with two friends when he got caught in a current. His friends were able to make it to safety.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday morning.
