A local teenager has drowned in Lake Michigan near Manistee.

Coast Guard divers found the body of 15-year-old Kyle Barrett of Laingsburg.

He was swimming with a friend Wednesday when he started to struggle in rough water.

The Coast Guard says waves were in the four to six foot range and there was a strong undertow.

His friend made it back to shore, but help didn't get there in time.
