Authorities have released the identity of a man who they say was swept away by floodwaters in Stephens County on Wednesday night.

The Stephens County Sheriff said at 8:45 Thursday morning search crews had found the body of 58-year old Faron Lynn Morgan, three-quarters of a mile into a pasture which was flooded by storms along Mud Creek off Highway 53. Morgan was a resident of Comanche OK. 

The incident took place about 12 miles east of Comanche. 

Authorities say Morgan was riding an ATV checking property when the floodwaters swept him into the flooded pasture during a severe thunderstorm.
