    This undated photo provided by Lewis County sheriff’s office shows the Ohnapecosh River near Mount Rainier National Park where a 17-year-old from Port Orchard fell in the fast-moving water and was swept away on Friday.

CHEHALIS — The Lewis County sheriff’s office says a Port Orchard teen is presumed drowned in a river near the southeast corner of Mount Rainier National Park.
The sheriff’s office said the 17-year-old was taking photos with friends Friday when he slipped and fell in the cold and fast-moving Ohanapecosh River near the Cedar Grove campground.
The friends tried to reach him with a stick when he was caught in an eddy, but he was swept away.
County searchers and park rangers have been unable to find him.
