The body of a teen girl has been found near an Arizona river using drones with thermal technology four days after she was swept away by flood waters.
Faith Moore, 16, was found near the Verde River around 4pm on Wednesday after she was swept away by dangerous flooding during a monsoon in rural Arizona about 100 miles north of Phoenix on Saturday.
Verde Valley and Cottonwood firefighters were called when Faith's car was stranded in about two-feet deep water at 9pm on Saturday, KSAZ-TV reported.
Faith was swept downstream while firefighters tried to rescue her from the flooding, Verde Valley fire officials said.

Officials immediately sent out search teams who worked around the clock since Saturday to try to rescue her. However, air support was not immediately available because there were 'numerous active rescues going on simultaneously'.
According to KSAZ-TV, more than a hundred people - including emergency workers and volunteers - searched for Faith. Even the National Guard joined search efforts.
Search teams used K-9 units, GPS trackers and thermal drone technology with the hope of finding the teen alive.
