Searchers recover body from creek

The search is over for a 27-year-old man who went down in a Millington creek and never came back up. Shelby County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Steve Shular said the man's body was recovered Monday afternoon.

Crews searched Sunday afternoon and into the evening in Big Creek near Raleigh Millington Road . They scoured the creek bed, brought in canines to sniff out any trace of the man's scent, and sent in dive teams to search by water.

The search continued Monday, when the body was found.

Investigators said the man's brother and two girls were on the edge of the creek when the man went into the water. His identity has not yet been released.
