Body of missing teen found in Hand County

After two days of an extensive search, the body of 17-year-old Wyatt Rowland has been found in Hand County.

Sheriff Shane Croeni says Rowland and his pickup were found separately in a small body of water north of Miller.

Around 9 p.m. Monday night, Department of Criminal Investigation phone analysts were able to track his cell phone to that location.

Tire tracks leading into the water matched the pickup authorities were looking for.

Divers found the pickup but Rowland was not in it. His body was found at around 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

He went missing late Sunday night. The search had included airplanes, drones, a helicopter and dozens of volunteers.
