AKRON -- Search and rescue crews are back searching  Akron Peninsula Road and Mud Creek in Akron Sunday.

They search is for Nic Shaffer, 12, who was with his mother and sister when he fell or slipped into the water and was swept away in Mud Creek and into the Cuyahoga River.

Nic, who is autistic, was wearing shorts but no shirt when he went into the water.

He can swim but he doesn't really like to, his family said.

The family asked is anyone sees him to please contact the authorities.

Normally the creek is about ankle-deep but with the rain it's gotten a lot deeper and the the current is strong.

The creek is behind the home Nic lives in with his mother.
