MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A body was found Friday near the place where two 16-year-old girls had disappeared south of Madison.
Dane County sheriff’s officials said a body of a teenage girl washed up on the shore of Lake Kegonsa. It was not immediately identified, and officials could not say if the body was that of Emma Maurer of Stoughton or Sydnie Kwiatowski of Footville.

Later, the friends found the missing girls’ personal items – and they called 911 for help.
Authorities, friends, and relatives have been searching the area. A search for the other girl continued early Friday afternoon.
