DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say a body found in a creek near Duncan is believed to be that of an 8-year-old boy who’s been missing for two weeks.

Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford told reporters that the body found Saturday in Claridy Creek is thought to be that of Damion Alexander Davidson.

Ford says the body was found about two miles south of where police believe the boy was swept away during heavy rains and flooding.

The remains are being sent to the state medical examiner’s office in Oklahoma City for positive identification.

Ford says the boy was autistic and did not speak. He was reported missing the morning of June 12 when his family found he was not in his bed.
