KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) — Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.

Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.

Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
