TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Authorities have identified a teenager who drowned Saturday in a lake south of Seattle.

Medical examiners determined that 17-year-old Donovan Lafoga died of an accidental drowning in Five Mile Lake in Auburn.

Authorities say Lafoga was swimming with friends Saturday afternoon when he disappeared. His body was found later that day.

The News Tribune reports at least three other people have drowned in the lake since 2001.
