Search crews are looking for a 17-year-old teenager who apparently fell off a dam in Kingfisher Thursday night.

Emergency crews were called to the creek around 7:15 p.m. Several agencies and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol's dive teams have been called in to assist.

Authorities say the boy was with a group of teens at Uncle John Creek when he fell in. They say that part of the dam is popular, but very dangerous right now because of high water levels from the recent rains.

Randy Poindexter Chief with Kingfisher Fire department says they will also use cadaver dogs on Friday to help search for the teen.
