Body of missing teen found in American River

The body of a missing teenager has been recovered from the waters of the American River Wednesday after he was reported missing April 30. 

The 14-year-old boy's body was found by California State Parks at approximately 11:30 a.m. in the general area where he went missing. The boy, who was not wearing a life vest, was swept down stream from Rainbow Bridge in Folsom.

Sacramento Metro firefighters were sent to the area and said the boy was there with friends. When the teen's friends didn't see the boy surface, they alerted authorities.

Search and rescue crews had been concentrating their efforts from Rainbow Bridge along Greenback Lane down to the motorists' bridge along Folsom Boulevard.
