Body Found Downstream from Search area for Wichita Boy, 11

Associated Press - June 6, 2016 6:45 am

Authorities have found a body downstream from where they’d been searching for a missing 11-year-old boy who fell into a Kansas creek.
The Wichita Eagle reports  that Wichita police Deputy Chief Hassan Ramzah says the body was found Saturday by a kayaker. Ramzah couldn’t confirm the identity of the body, other than to say it was a male.
Officials say Devon Dean Cooley fell into Gypsum Creek on May 27. Crews have continued searching for the boy, and say the unidentified body was found about a mile downstream from the search area.
Cooley’s family issued a statement late Saturday saying they believe the body to be Devon’s but also acknowledging the absence of official confirmation.
Police say the body likely won’t be identified until a coroner’s investigation is completed.
