TULSA, Oklahoma -

Teams will resume the search for a missing Tulsa teen Sunday. Dario Hogan, 14, was last seen playing in a creek in north Tulsa with friends. He is believed to have been washed away by swift-moving waters in Saturday night's severe storms.

Crews responded to a 911 call just before 9 p.m. Saturday reporting that three young teens were playing in Coal Creek at East Pine Street and North Yale Avenue.

One of the other boys was rescued by a friend while Hogan remains missing.

Police, fire and EMSA crews searched for Hogan through the late night, walking river banks for several miles. Tulsa Police helicopters and Urban Rescue search dog teams also assisted, according to Tulsa Fire Department Assistant Chief Doug Wood.

"We started at Independence and Quebec, searched the creek all the way north to about Yale," Wood said Sunday morning.

"We made it all the way to Apache last night."

Wood said the creek is fairly well maintained but has overgrown areas between Pine and Apache and east of Yale where firefighters plan to concentrate the search Sunday.

Hogan was wearing gray athletic shorts with no shirt or shoes when he disappeared. He is about 5'10", weighs 130 pounds and has brown curly hair.

Firefighters say the current was very strong at the time of the teen's disappearance. Tulsa County was under a flash flood watch.

The other two boys are home safe.
