ALLEN COUNTY - The body of a teen who went missing has been recovered by searchers in the St. Marys River in Fort Wayne. 

Responders had been dispatched to the 3900 block of Old Mill Road for a person in the water at approximately 7:38 PM last evening. Witnesses said the teen was wading in the area and was swept downstream before going under the surface of the water. 

Responders searched the area until nightfall and resumed operations this morning. Researchers recovered the teen's body at 10:08 AM this morning, just downstream from where he went missing yesterday evening. 

The teen was located by Indiana Conservation Officers using sonar and recovered by Fort Wayne Fire Department divers. The investigation is ongoing.
