      A 6-year-old Fenton boy has drowned while swimming with family members at a rock quarry outside Rolla.

      The Missouri State Highway patrol says Noah Cook was in a flotation device in the presence of family members Friday afternoon at Fugitive Beach, a private property at an abandoned rock quarry southeast of Rolla. The patrol says family members couldn't find the child after several minutes.

      A diver later found his body.

      The child was pronounced dead by the Phelps County coroner.
