Anamosa firemen and State Conservation Officers Mike Brewer and Hon Graves had searched steadily from early Tuesday until Donald Becker’s body floated to the surface Wednesday morning. The 12-year-old. along with his brother, Brad, 16. were swimming below the dam here with a group of friends. An Illinois deputy sheriff saw the incident and attempted to rescue the boys, but was driven back by the swift current.
