Body of missing boy found in Roza Canal

TERRACE HEIGHTS, Wash. - Searchers have now found the body of a missing 3-year-old boy in the Roza Canal.

The boy was found in about 10 feet of water near the power generating station off of Rest Haven Road in Yakima, said John Durand, sergeant with the Yakima Sheriff's Office.

Divers had been in the water only six minutes this morning when they found the boy.

The body was taken to the Yakima County Coroner's Office Wednesday morning, Durand said.

Crews began draining parts of the Roza Canal Tuesday morning to help locate the boy.
