      Teen's body found in drainage system

      The body of a teen swept away in a drainage system was found Saturday morning.

      The body of a teen who fell into an Eldon drainage system Friday night was found Saturday morning.

      The Eldon Fire Department received a call about a young man that apparently fell into a culvert on 5th Street and into the drainage system Friday night.

      Rescue crews launched an immediate search.

      Crews sent cameras down into the area where the 17-year-old was believed to be, while divers from the Lake Ozark Fire Department started downstream and worked their way up.

      The search was suspended at midnight Friday due to extreme conditions and resumed at 8 a.m. Saturday.

      At about 9:50 a.m. Saturday crews found the body of Donald Parker downstream about one mile from where he fell.
