Chief Holland: "Rusty" Grewell swept under in Tusc. River on Sunday

NEWCOMERSTOWN, Ohio -- The Newcomerstown Police Department has released the identity of a teenager swept under while swimming in the Tuscarawas River on Sunday.

Police Chief Gary Holland on Wednesday said that efforts to find 17-year-old Bryan "Rusty" Grewell have been frustrated by heavy rains, swift currents and rising waters since search and rescue crews began looking on Sunday evening. Holland said that rescue personnel continue to comb the banks of the Tuscarawas River for signs of Grewell, and that dive teams from New Philadelphia will resume their efforts once the water recedes.

Grewell is said to have disappeared at around 5:00 p.m. while swimming in the Tuscarawas River on Sunday afternoon.
