ARCADIA, Ind. (AP) -- Police in central Indiana have recovered the body of a second driver who disappeared in a rain-swollen creek.
 
Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy Bryant Orem says the body of 42-year-old David Baker of Arcadia was recovered Sunday morning near where his truck sank in Cicero Creek about 30 miles north of Indianapolis.
 
Orem says Baker had called 911 early Saturday to report his truck was sinking in the creek. Searchers found the truck later Saturday and family members rescued Baker's dog, but the search for Baker was postponed because of hazardous conditions.
 
A second Arcadia man, 64-year-old Robert Morgan of Arcadia, died Friday night when his truck sank in the same creek.
 
Three to 5 inches of rain fell on parts of central and northern Indiana on Thursday.
