The body of a teenage boy was found Tuesday night in a pond in a Mandarin apartment complex, according to the Sheriff's office.
Officers and firefighters were called to the Coopers Hawks apartment complex at 10275 Old St Augustine Road about 7:30 p.m. after a resident made a 911 call to report the body, police said.
"They found an unidentified black male between 15 to 20 inside of the pond, face down and unresponsive," Sgt. Steve Rudlaff said. "Jacksonville Fire rescue was able to pull this individual to the side of the pond and pronounced him deceased."
Police did not observe any evidence of foul play in the death, and do not know how long he had been in the pond in the complex, Rudlaff said. Missing person reports are being checked to see if this victim is among them, Rudlaff said. The Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy on the young man to determine cause of death and identify him, Rudlaff said.
Anyone with information on the death is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (904) 630-0500 or First Coast Crime Stoppers at (866) 845-8477 (TIPS).
