BURNET COUNTY, Texas -- The body of an 18-year-old was found in Lake Inks Thursday.

A dive team from Lake Buchanan found the body of Johnny Mosley in about seven feet of water around 12:30 p.m.

His cause of death has not yet been determined, but officials with Burnet County say they believe he may have drowned.

Officials say Mosley was picnicking at the park with a church group. Around 11 a.m. he and a friend went into the lake and started swimming toward the park store, which is 100 yards across the water.

They reportedly had difficulty and went beneath the water. Mosley's friend tried to pull him up but was unable to save him.

A state park volunteer who saw the incident returned to the shore and called for help. Park staff, a dive team and an ambulance responded to the scene.
