AUBURN, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a teenage boy disappeared while attempting to swim across the Green River near Auburn.

The Valley Regional Fire Authority says the boy’s friends reported him missing around 8 p.m. Tuesday.

KOMO-TV reports (https://goo.gl/gp2Eqv ) the 17-year-old had crossed the river with friends and began to struggle on the way back.
