Body of missing boy, 5, found in river

GATES, Ore. - An angler fishing the North Santiam River on Friday morning found the body of a little boy who fell in the river May 18 and was presumed drowned.

Anthony Barkley Berlin, 5, fell into the river near Niagara Park while fishing with his father.

A family friend, Eric Eugene Johnson, 22, jumped into the river in attempt to save Berlin but was swept away by the strong current and also drowned. Johnson's body was recovered that same day.

Efforts to recover the boy's body were suspended due to the danger to search crews.

The angler called the sheriff's office around 10 a.m. Friday and reported seeing the body floating along the riverbank near the city of Gates.
