SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) Family and friends have gathered to remember a teen who drowned at a neighborhood lake in suburban Kansas City.
The Kansas City Star reports that more than 100 friends, family members and fellow classmates of 17-year-old Treyvon Mays met Wednesday night for a vigil at Lakeview Estates in Shawnee.
Mays was at small lake there Tuesday night when his friends lost track of him. They weren’t sure whether he was still in the water or had gone up to a house. After reporting him missing, a dive team was called, and crews quickly recovered his body.
During the gathering, friends told of Mays’ kindness to strangers and his passion for life. Mays’ cousin, Precious Swygert, said what happened was “horrible” and described May as “a wonderful man.”
