CALDWELL - A man's body has been recovered from Indian Creek after a search was launched for him Tuesday afternoon.

The man went into the creek just before 4 p.m. near East Linden Street and Griffiths Parkway, according to police dispatch.

Caldwell Police Lt. Dave Wright told KTVB the man was apparently by the creek and bent down to take a closer look at something when he fell in.

A man who was with the victim went in after him, but couldn't find him.

The Canyon County Coroner's Office identified the victim Wednesday as 57-year-old Charles Edward Webster of Meridian. His cause of death has not yet been determined. 

Wright said the man's body was found by the Ada County Sheriff's Office dive team at around 8:10 p.m.
