UPDATE: WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office along with additional emergency response agencies have located the body of the missing 13-year-old boy from Snow’s Cut Park.

The body of Shandon Tyre Wright Jr. was found about a mile south of Snow’s Cut shortly after 9:00 this morning. Emergency personnel found the victim in the water near Sugar Loaf sand dune in Carolina Beach State Park.

According to eyewitnesses, the boy was in the water Saturday afternoon with his father and a young girl, all from Rocky Point. The girl started struggling, so the father got her to safety. He then realized the 13-year-old boy was distressed as well but was unable to reach him. After an unsuccessful attempt to rescue the boy, an eyewitness told us the father was then rescued by two fishermen.
