FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — A Forsyth County middle school teacher who was found dead at Kernersville Lake Park drowned, according to Forsyth County Chief Deputy Brad Stanley.

Family members found Krishawn Noble, 23, dead in the lake at Kernersville Lake Park on Friday evening.

Noble had been missing since Thursday afternoon, after he rented a paddle boat and the boat later washed ashore.

On Thursday, deputies said they were asked to make contact with Noble after he didn’t show up for work. Noble was scheduled to begin his new career as a first-year teacher at East Forsyth Middle School this year.

A preliminary autopsy at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center showed no signs of trauma to Noble’s body or signs of foul play, Stanley said.

Stanley said it is unclear what caused Noble’s drowning at this time.
