Authorities: 3 kids swept away in floodwater, still missing

PAYSON, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities are searching for three children who went missing when the vehicle they were in was swept away by floodwaters in Arizona’s Tonto National Forest.

The Gila County Sheriff’s Office says the possible motorhome was swept away after trying to cross a creek that was closed around 4 p.m. Friday.

According to multiple reports, two adults and four kids got out of the vehicle, but three remained inside.

A state Department of Public Safety helicopter was assisting in the search.

There were heavy rains and flood warnings in much of north-central and northern Arizona Friday as storms appeared all over the state.
