Area law enforcement continue their search for a teenager who was pulled underwater in the Choctawhatchee river yesterday.

Sheriff Wally Olson with Dale County Sheriff's Office says crews from around the area are searching for an Enterprise teenager.

The search area is 5 to 6 miles from where the teen was last seen.

That was about a 100 feet from the boat ramp at the Choctawhatchee bridge near the Houston and Dale county line.

Sheriff Olson says the teen and 5 or 6 of his friends were at the river when he tried to cross the waterway and was taken underwater by the current.

A woman at the scene called 911.

Authorities have been searching the area since 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon.

    He was one of my best friends. (No names being said right now) We had decided to go to the river. We started to swim across and he started splashing and making noises like something was wrong then he went straight under. Me and all of our friends that were there started looking as hard as we could for him. Our friend called 911 and it took them 45 minutes for the first car to arrive. And more than 2 and a half hours for the divers to get in and even get a boat in the water. Hell with this rescue team. Me and all of our friends have been told on more than one occasion that we did more than the rescue team have done yet. When we were looking for him and trying to save him right when it had happened, people were just standing on the bank watching and talking. No one will forget him. We love you. He knows whats really happening, and you should know what really happened. Thanks, B.C.
