LEWIS TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The body of a missing Brown County boy was found in Clermont County Saturday evening.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office says 11-year-old Justin Devercelly was located at the Meldahl Locks and Dam in Clermont County around 9 p.m.

Justin and his brother, 8-year-old Blake Devercelly, went missing Wednesday after heavy storms may have trapped them near Bullskin Creek. Officials believe the boys were playing near the creek while they were with a babysitter.

On Thursday morning, crews had found Blake's body near the creek.

Hundreds of volunteers and emergency crews spent days looking for the boys. The search for Justin had been called off Friday after the third day of searching.

Justin Devercelly Sr. was at the scene and identified his son. He was very emotional but glad that there is closure to this tragedy.

Officials say they are investigating the incident to determine if any charges will be filed against the babysitter.
