Search For Teen In Big River Scaled Back

House Springs, MO  (KTRS) An all day search using sonar failed to find the body of presumed drowning victim 14-year old Devon Lavelle Cotton.

It was the second day of searching for the teen who had tried to swim across the Big River in Jefferson County according to other teens who were with him. They say Cotton was swept under water by strong currents and did not resurface.

Rescuers fought against the strong current and could not see into the muddy water.  They used sonar to conduct a grid search.

After two days of using that method, officials say they will discontinue the sonar search but will continue to do a surface search for the victim.
