REVERE, Mo. -- The body of a rural Revere man was found midday Tuesday in Dumas Creek near a low water crossing on Clark County 90.

The body was identified as James N. Teeters, 68.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office received a call at 10:44 a.m. Tuesday that Teeters was missing from his home. A search was initiated. Authorities found Teeters' 1999 GMC pickup on Clark County 90. His body was found a half mile from his truck.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that Teeters apparently attempted to cross the flooded creek and was swept away by the current. Teeters is believed to have left his pickup and drowned. The incident occurred between June 7 and 8.

An autopsy is scheduled Wednesday in the Boone County Medical Examiner's office in Columbia.

Assisting in the search and recovery were Teeterss family members, the Clark County Fire Department and Revere Fire Department.
