After the official confirmation was released to the public, the family of Kyle Rogers has released a statement to the Belvidere and surrounding community exclusively through Q98.5:

To the friends, family and community of Kyle Rogers.
We want to thank you for your support, love, thoughts and prayers during this time.
We feel it is necessary for us to let you know that Kyle's body was recovered during the evening of Thurs May 17. Results show Kyle passed of accidental drowning. Other details of his passing have not been released to the family or possibilities of what might have occurred.
We ask you respect the family during this time, and keep all comments, messages and phone calls to a minimum.
