Missing Biglerville teen’s body found along flooded creek


The body of an 18-year-old Biglerville man has been found during a search for him along the Conewago Creek in Adams County.

Alejandro Morales was found Wednesday after a state police helicopter spotted his body along the creek in the area of Stone Jug Road and Benders Church Road in Butler Township, state police in Gettysburg said.

The body has been positively identified as Morales.

The investigation is ongoing.

Morales had been reported missing by his family on Monday. According to Facebook posts, he disappeared Sunday after his van apparently became stranded in high water on Benders Church Road.

Police searched the creek on Tuesday with the help of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and the Pennsylvania Game Commission, but the search eventually was suspended due to the rising waters.

Crisis intervention counselors will be at Biglerville High School from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday to speak with family and friends.
