Boy's body found in Conasauga Creek

BENTON, Tenn. (AP) -- Searchers have recovered the body of a young boy from a creek where he, his father and his sister disappeared eight days earlier.

According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, the body of 6-year-old Lazarus Alley was found about noon Thursday in Conasauga Creek in Polk County. The boy was in a canoe that overturned on Jan. 16 after heavy rain had caused the creek to flood.

A search continued for 6-year-old Helana Alley and 36-year-old Nick Alley.

Three other children of the same family had managed to swim to a creek bank and were rescued.

A funeral service was conducted Tuesday for the three family members who were missing.
