BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Authorities have recovered the body of a 13-year-old boy who went into the Susquehanna River Tuesday, but never resurfaced.

The body of Dillon Pierce was found Wednesday morning.

A Cecil County School official confirms Pierce was a 7th grader at Perryville Middle School, and a counseling team will be at the school to help students.

Rescue crews were unable to locate Pierce’s body on Tuesday, despite two rounds of searching. The rescue was being coordinated from the Perryville Pier.
