Authorities say a 3-year-old boy who went missing from a seasonal home in upstate New York apparently drowned in a lake.

New York State Police say the family reported the boy missing a little before 15:00 on Sunday from their seasonal residence near Goodyear Lake in the Otsego County town of Milford, 96km southwest of Albany.

State troopers and the Otsego County Sheriff's Office conducted a search, alongside firefighters, emergency responders and civilians.

The child was located by a state police underwater recovery team off a dock on Goodyear Lake around 16:30. Troopers say resuscitation was attempted, but the boy was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police haven't released additional details surrounding the death, including the child's name. The investigation is continuing.
