After 14 hours of searching, the sheriff's office's marine unit was able to find Clarance Lake III in Lake Sherwood at around 3:04 p.m., Saturday, officials stated.
Deputies stated that the 18-year-old Lake ran from them on Friday, at around 1:50 a.m., as the authorities were investigating a car burglary at the Hawthorne Groves Apartment complex on Hawthorne Groves Boulevard.
Lake ran into a shed at a nearby Lowe’s home-improvement store, then jumped a fence and went into Lake Sherwood off State Road 50 near Good Homes Road, deputies stated. A law enforcement helicopter spotted him in distress, but was not been able to find him.
Authorities found a backpack in the shed, which contained property from a vehicle in the complex.
Two other males, 17 and 18 years old, were stopped and questioned and eventually charged with burglary to a vehicle.
