WOODLAND PARK, NJ — A boy who went missing at the Great Notch Reservoir was found dead Sunday morning. The 15-year-old Paterson resident was reported missing Saturday, prompting a search of the Great Notch Reservoir.

First-responding divers found the teen’s body at about 10 a.m. Sunday, according to Woodland Park Mayor Keith Kazmark. Officials opted against publicly identifying the victim “out of respect and privacy of the family,” the mayor said. “The investigation into what led to this will continue in the coming days,” Kazmark said.
