Police still investigating death of 12-year-old boy at campground
Investigators remained at a York County campground late Thursday morning where a 12-year-old boy was found dead after being reported missing the previous afternoon.
Police said Pau Khai, 12, had been reported missing around 4 p.m. Wednesday. He was last seen at the Summit Grove Campground in New Freedom wearing a white T-shirt and swim trunks.
According to the York County Coroner's Office, the boy was found dead in a pool at the same campground shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday.
Police were still at the pool, trying to piece together what happened to Pay from the time he went missing to the time he was found. They declined to comment on the incident.
Officials told Fox43 that Khai was staying at the camp as part of a Lancaster County church group that included about 40 children.
No camp activities were taking place Thursday morning after the incident, and camp employees were stationed at the gate to keep reporters and photographers out of the camp as the investigation continued.
According to the coroner's office, Southern Regional Police are investigating the incident. An autopsy is scheduled Friday.
