Area Teen Missing in River

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.
