ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - Searchers are planning to renew efforts to find the body of a 6-year-old boy swept away in September by floods in a small polygamous community on the Utah-Arizona border.

The Spectrum newspaper in St. George reports (https://bit.ly/1LWRXrT) that crews from Colorado City said Saturday more recent floods have created new paths through waterways.

Terrill Musser, of Colorado City Search and Rescue, says the new conditions may make it possible to locate 6-year-old Tyson Lucas Black.

Black was with 16 women and children when a flash flood on Sept. 14 swept away the two cars they were riding in. Twelve members of two families were killed. Three young boys survived.

Authorities and volunteers failed to find the child during several searches through a 10-mile stretch of mud and debris piles.
