Body of missing Ste. Genevieve teen found in lake


Ste. Genevieve, MO – There will be an autopsy today (Tuesday) on the body of a Ste. Genevieve teenager who was recovered from a lake. Wade Lurk, 17, was last seen sleeping in his car near Goose Creek Lake after a party on April First.

Fishermen on Monday called the sheriff to report finding a car in the lake. Authorities said Lurk might have become disoriented after leaving the party and driven into the lake by accident. But foul play wasn't immediately ruled out, either.

Hundreds of volunteers had searched the woods and fields around the lake and the Ste. Genevieve area for Lurk.
