    Abou Sheriff

    Authorities monitoring river banks for missing 12-year-old
    Authorities searched the Des Moines River Saturday night for a boy who went underwater while swimming and did not reemerge. Des Moines firefighters responded to 600 Birdland Drive around 8 p.m. Saturday. They said four boys, ages 9-12, were swimming near the dock in the river.

    Authorities said the missing boy, 12-year-old Abou Sheriff, went missing after jumping off the dock just east of the 6th Avenue bridge. One of the children asked someone to call 911 when he did not resurface.

    The Des Moines Fire Department wet emergency team joined the search effort, and searched the water's surface north from Birdland Marina. Des Moines police took over from the fire department's search Saturday night.
