DALLAS - Authorities believe they've found the body of one of two men missing after being swept into rain-swollen creeks in Dallas and Fort Worth.

Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Richard Harrison tells The Associated Press a body was found in the search area Sunday afternoon but has not been positively identified as the missing man. A witness said the man was swept away Saturday night after stepping in the creek to cool off.

Lt. Jerome Henry of Dallas-Fire Rescue tells The Dallas Morning News ( ) the search resumed Sunday for a man swept away in Dallas' White Rock Creek. Witnesses say the man was fishing when he lost his footing.

The storms caused street flooding, stranded drivers and a partial roof cave-in at the Urban Inter Tribal Center of Texas.
