A crocodile is believed to have taken a 12-year-old boy missing from a Northern Territory billabong.

Another boy, also 12, swimming in the billabong was bitten by a  crocodile, police say.

Police and Park Rangers are conducting a search and rescue  mission by land and boat after being alerted to the incident at  Kakadu National Park on Sunday afternoon.

Acting Commander Michael White said police believed the missing  boy was taken by a crocodile as he and a number of other young boys  were swimming in the billabong.

‘‘One other boy, also aged 12, was bitten on the arm by the  crocodile and has received medical treatment from attending St John  Ambulance members,’’ White said.
