WINOOSKI, Vt. (AP) — Searchers have recovered the body of a 12-year-old Massachusetts girl who presumably drowned in Vermont’s Winooski River after going missing while swimming.

Officials say Kaylynn Small of Springfield, Mass., was swimming with friends in the river that runs between Winooski and Burlington when she went under and failed to resurface shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday. Her body was recovered at about 10 a.m. Sunday.

Winooski Police Chief Steve McQueen tells the Burlington Free Press (http://bfpne.ws/14rZ8Kc ) that the girl was spending the summer with relatives.

Searchers were unable to find the girl before nightfall Sunday and resumed their search Sunday.
