MERRILL (WAOW)-- The parents of 17 year-old Lydia Trostle positively identified their daughter's body tonight after searchers pulled her from the Wisconsin River.

Divers found her shortly before 6:30 tonight in the same area the teen went missing. 

Crews began searching for Trostle after she disappeared last night near the dam in Merrill. Police say Lydia Trostle and her friend were floating down river on a log trying to make it to the local skate park. By the time they reached this part of the river and realized they had taken a wrong turn but it was too late. 

Both girls struggled to make it to shore and only one made it there safely. 

The Merrill Fire and Police Departments would like to thank everyone helped with the search.
