Boston boy found dead after wandering away from summer camp

BOSTON (AP) — Police are trying to determine how an 8-year-old boy wandered away unnoticed from a city-run summer camp at a Boston beach and ended up dead.

Kyzr Willis was last seen around 2 p.m. Tuesday near the L Street Bathhouse at Carson Beach in the city’s South Boston neighborhood. His body was found around 7 p.m.

Willis was attending a day camp at the Curley Community Center, which includes the bathhouse.

It’s unclear how he slipped away from the camp, which is run by the Boston Centers for Youth and Families.

Quincy police, state police and the U.S. Coast Guard all assisted in the search.

The bathhouse will remain closed until further notice as police investigate.
