The two-day search for a missing Franklin teen ended Sunday morning when his body was pulled from the base of the dam in the Big Blue River.

Dozens of search and rescue personnel searched a 100-yard stretch of the river in Edinburgh from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning when they found 17-year-old Jason Moran. Michael Chadbourne and Sarah McLevish, both 16 and from Franklin, have been in critical condition at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis since Friday.

The three teens were swimming with Trent Crabb, 17, and Mark Nally, 18, when McLevish was overtaken and swept over the dam. Moran, Chadbourne, Crabb and Nally followed McLevish, trying to help her.
