Search crews have found the body of a little boy who went missing in the Roanoke River Wednesday evening. Highway Patrol officials say a group of children were playing Wednesday evening near a boat landing in Weldon when the child went under the water.

Investigators believe the 11-year-old may have gone out too far.

Search crews found the child's body late Thursday morning.
