Authorities say they have recovered the body of a Victorville teenager who apparently drowned after jumping off a cliff at Arizona’s Lake Havasu.

Officials say 16-year-old Chance Huerta was found Saturday, a day after he tried to flip off a cliff near Mohave Rock but landed wrong.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Department says he briefly resurfaced at the site just north of Sand Bar, but then witnesses lost sight of him.

Dive teams began searching Friday night, and returned on Saturday morning.

The teen was found using side scan sonar and recovered by divers.

Lake Havasu is a reservoir located near the borders with Nevada and California.
