FIELDING, Utah (AP) - Authorities say they have found the body of a missing 18-year-old Utah man in the Cutler Dam Canal.

Box Elder County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Dale Ward says the man was swimming and fishing with five other young adults on Tuesday evening. According to Ward, the young man was floating with three others and each of them had planned to grab an overhead structure, but the man missed the structure and continued down the canal.

The other swimmers saw the young man go under the water and appear distressed.

Water flow in the canal was shut down as emergency responders searched for the man.

His name has not yet been released.

Ward warned that swimming in the canals is dangerous and against the law.
