Search for Teenager in Lake

A search was underway Thursday for a teenager who fell from a boat... on Blount County's Highland Lake. Authorities say the 15 year old boy apparently fell overboard while accompanying some adults who were inspecting dock damage. "Our hearts go out to them," Blount County Sheriff Loyd Arrington said. "He apparently is gone, and what can you say in a situation like this? If you've never experienced you don't know what to say." The teenager was not immediately identified.
