PORTAGE, WI -- A missing Beloit teenager is found dead Sunday afternoon after a holiday retreat up north.

Columbia County Sheriff's Department said they pulled 17-year-old Thomas Biggs' body from a pond in Portage.

The recovery comes after a massive search effort that began Friday night when the teen went missing.

A dive team found him under the water just before two Sunday afternoon.

His family had a trailer near the pond where they were spending the weekend.

An autopsy will be held Tuesday.
