An Oklahoma teen is dead after he left his home on a horse and didn't return, investigators said.
Family members said 13-year-old Cash Lawrence, of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, rode off to round up a herd of horses on the family's property on Tuesday. When the horse returned without Lawrence, family members and authorities started to search for him.
Lawrence and his brother were set to compete in a youth rodeo Wednesday. Family members said he wanted to become a bull rider.
Family members said Lawrence competed in track and field, and even made a pole vault out of supplies he found on the family's small ranch. They said Lawrence loved the outdoors and was looking forward to joining the seventh-grade basketball team in Kellyville.
