Body Of Teen Has Been Found

After hours of searching, crews find the body of a Morgan County teenager.

Police say 18-year old Joseph Penix was driving down U.S. 460 early Thursday morning when he lost control of his pick up, hit a guard rail, and flipped.

Penix was ejected and ended up in the Licking River.

Emergency crews found his truck at the bottom of a cliff Thursday morning.

They didn't recover his body until late Thursday afternoon.

Investigators say the dense fog may have played a role in the crash.
