DUNCANNON, Pa. (AP) - Search crews are trying to find a missing 8-year-old boy who was swept away in the Susquehanna River in central Pennsylvania.

State police in Perry County said the boy was playing with his 10-year-old brother in a creek that empties into the river when he was swept away by the current shortly before 2:30 p.m. Friday.

The other boy called 911 and about 100 people joined the search by emergency crews and a team from York County. Fire department crews and river rescue boats searched Saturday along the shoreline.

The effort resumed Sunday morning with state police saying the search was focusing strictly on the water, with the assistance of a dog. The boy’s name hasn’t been released.
