ELDON, Mo. (AP) -- Crews have found the body of a central Missouri teenager who was swept up in to a fast-rising creek.

Lake News Online reports (http://bit.ly/18Gxo2b) that 17-year-old Donald Parker was swept away in a creek in Eldon on Friday night. His body was found Saturday along a creek bed about a half mile from where he was last seen.

Eldon police say Parker was last seen Friday night in Eldon playing in several feet of water when the quickly rising waters pulled him into a nearby culvert, which drains into Saline Creek.
