    Authorities say a 3-year-old boy who went missing from a home in upstate New York has drowned in the Susquehanna River.

    New York State Police say the family reported Andrew Durkin missing a little before 3 p.m. Sunday from their seasonal residence in the Otsego County town of Milford, 60 miles southwest of Albany.

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

    The boy was located by a state police underwater recovery team about 17 feet from a dock around 4:30 p.m. Troopers say resuscitation was attempted, but Andrew was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

    Andrew, who has a twin brother, was from Gilboa in neighboring Delaware County.
