UPDATE 2 Search on for body of drowned youth

UPDATE 2 Police say they have suspended the search for the 14 year-old’s body and will resume the search when river water levels recede.

UPDATE Police are continuing to search for the 14 year-old’s body and are now now conducting aerial searches of the river.

Grande Prairie and Beaverlodge RCMP are searching for the body of a 14 year-old boy who drowned at Red Willow Falls.

Police say the boy was swimming with a group at the falls, south of Elmworth, Alta., near the B.C. border, Sunday evening.

They received a call at around 8:50 p.m. that the boy had been pulled under by the current and subsequently began a search. However, police had to call off the search after it became dark.

The search began again Monday morning.
