Boy Scouts adult leader found dead at local camp

A man serving as an adult leader with the Boy Scouts of America at a children's summer camp in northwest Ohio has been found dead in his tent.

The Erie Shores Council of the Boy Scouts organization says the man was found at his campsite tent Tuesday at Pioneer Scout Reservation in Pioneer. They say the man appears to have died in his sleep.

Council officials say in a Facebook posting they're providing support services and counseling. A message left for camp officials was not immediately returned Tuesday. A message left for the Williams County Sheriff's Office also was not immediately returned.

The summer camp, near the borders of Michigan and Indiana, is hosting about 500 children this week.
