    Kayaker's body found in Deerfield Lake; teen was a CAP cadet

    June 14, 2012

    SOUTH DAKOTA -- Search crews at Deerfield Lake recovered the body of 15-year-old Justin Lewis, the Hill City youth and Civil Air Patrol cadet missing for 16 days, about 5 p.m. Wednesday. He was last seen Memorial Day, May 28, when his mother, Lynda Lewis, dropped him off to kayak on the lake in the central Black Hills. The teen never arrived at the agreed-upon meeting time to be picked up. Authorities found his water-filled kayak and unbuckled life jacket the next day. The recovery ends an emotional search by no less than 10 agencies, including members from Lewis’ own Crazy Horse Composite Squadron in Custer, where he served as a cadet second lieutenant.
