Search Continues For Missing LCG Youth Killed At Summer Camp

Living Church of God's official announcement 
on its Youth page is here.

The sad incident with the Living Church of God youth killed at their summer camp is now a recovery effort.

Authorities will continue the search this morning for the body of a 19-year-old Australian woman who fell while water-skiing and was hit by a boat in Alum Creek Lake on Sunday.

Andrew Hollenback, region manager of the Division of Watercraft at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, said the woman, identified as Morgan Montgomery was presumed dead.

The department was notified of the incident around 4 p.m. Divers searched the lake until almost 9:30 p.m. The search will resume at 8 a.m. today.

The boat’s driver was not identified, and ODNR officials did not release any statement he gave them.
He was cooperating with the investigation, they said.

Montgomery was staying with a church group camped at the Boy Scouts’ Camp Lazarus on Rt. 23, midway between Lewis Center and Delaware. The camp is sponsored by the Living Church of God, based in Charlotte, N.C. The camp, called Ohio Teen Camp, is one of several the church sponsors in the U.S., according to the church’s website.  Columbus Dispatch

Is it true that more people have died at "Living" Church of God services and events than at all UCG, COGWA, PCG and RCG services and events combined?
