DALLAS — A body has been found in Mountain Creek, officials say.

Dallas Fire Rescue said the Dallas Police Department's dive team found the body around 10:30 a.m. Monday.

Officials have not identified the body yet.

This comes after an 18-year-old went missing after he was pulled under while fishing in the creek Sunday.

DFR was called to Mountain Creek around 4:15 p.m. for a water rescue near South Merrifield Road and Keeneland Parkway.

A man and his 18-year-old son were fishing in a shallow part of the water near the spillway when the son was pulled under and never resurfaced, according to personnel at the scene.

DFR, DPD and the Texas Game Wardens deployed resources, including boats, sonar equipment and drones to help search.
