OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Authorities say they have recovered the body of a Nebraska teenager who went under while swimming in the Missouri River. Rescuers were called to the scene north of Omaha’s N.P. Dodge Park around 7 p.m. Thursday after someone reported the teen missing in the water.
Omaha authorities say that on Saturday morning, a person in a cabin on the Iowa side of the river spotted a body floating in the water and called 911. Omaha authorities say that because the teen’s body was found on the Iowa side, Council Bluffs authorities have taken over the investigation.
Family members identified the victim as 17-year-old Adrian Boatman, of Omaha. They say Boatman was with an aunt and four other children Thursday when he disappeared in the river just north of NP Dodge Park.
