Heavy rains in the Southwest flooded ditches and roads and prompted a dramatic rescue in Phoenix and a search for a missing Las Vegas-area teen.

Crews resumed the search Thursday for the 17-year-old boy who fell into a drainage wash in Henderson that quickly filled after a downpour.

Rains overnight Thursday flooded roads in the Phoenix area. A driver and her disabled passenger had to be pulled from a medical transport van that was stranded after the driver tried to navigate a flooded Scottsdale wash.

Firefighters used a ladder truck and news video showed the driver and passenger climbing out of a van stranded in the middle of a flooded area.
