The search for a 6-year-old girl who went missing after a vehicle was swept up in a creek in Tonto Basin has stretched into a second week.
Willa Rawlings has been missing since Nov. 29. She was one of nine family members in a military-style truck that became stuck while trying to cross Tonto Creek.
Austin Rawlings and Colby Rawlings, both 5, died in the incident. Authorities said Thursday that the search for Willa is a recovery effort.
The Gila County Sheriff's Office said Saturday that there were 60 crew members looking for Willa. Volunteers were also searching for the young girl.
Boats, six dog teams, drones, ground crews and divers were among the group searching between Bar X Crossing and the Beaver Dam.
Divers have been searching deeper areas under debris at the Beaver Dam and the levee at A Crossing.
The search for Willa has stretched from the point where Willa, Austin and Colby were swept away to Roosevelt Lake.
It has been made more difficult due to the thick brush in the area and rain, causing problems, limiting search efforts and creating dangerous conditions.
Some crews had to be pulled off the search for Willa after the body of a man who tried to cross Tonto Creek about 20 miles north of Bar X Crossing was found Saturday.
The man was later identified as 69-year-old Robert George Petitte.
He tried to cross the creek in the Tonto Creek Shores, authorities said Saturday.
Officials believe Petitte got out of his vehicle and was swept away. His body was found about 200 yards from his vehicle on an island in the creek.
