UPDATED:  Ottawa County Sheriff's Sergeant Cal Keuning announces that the victim has been identified.  He is Jose Moreno, a 17 year old from the Holland area, and a Senior at West Ottawa High School.

He said the body was found last night by a Remote Operated  Vehicle (ROV) using sonar, even though dive teams from across the county had come to assist and also were in the water.

A 17-year old teenager died after being pulled from Lake Michigan in the evening.

Ottawa Sheriff's deputies say the teen jumped into the water off the north pier at Holland State Park and a friend threw him a life preserver, but that did not help.

Apparently the teen was underwater for two hours before the sheriff's rescuers could pull him out.

He died at the hospital late last night
