The search-and-rescue director of the Emergency Management Agency says officials found the body of the teenager floating in front of a San Juan hotel.
Nino Correa says the teen had gone into the ocean with a nine-year-old cousin when a strong current carried them out to sea.
A family friend identified the teen as Justice Langley.
Correa says an uncle saved the younger boy with help of a tourist but that Langley disappeared.
Correa says the beach where the boys went swimming Sunday in front of the San Juan Marriott Resort has signs warning that swimming in the area is unsafe.
