Search For Girl In Rural Arizona Creek Now A Recovery Effort


Authorities say the search for a 6-year-old girl missing since being swept away in a rural Arizona creek during a rainstorm last week now is a recovery effort and no longer a rescue mission.

Gila County Sheriff's officials say they're trying to bring closure for the family of Willa Rawlings.

The girl has now been missing for more than six days. The search is scheduled to resume Thursday morning with crews planning to use a robotic boat in the murky water that's cluttered with debris and weeds.
