Searchers on Sunday morning found the body of a missing Converse County (Wyo.) Sheriff's deputy who had jumped into the North Platte River to help a struggling girl.

Deputy Bryan P. Gross, 29, was found in the river between the I-25 bridge site and Anderson Dairy Bridge. The location was about 1.5 miles from where he entered the river to assist a teenage girl who appeared to be struggling.

Deputy Gross was swept away in the river, which had been swollen by a heavy snowmelt.
