Crews recover W.Va. angler’s body, 2 still missing

BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) — Searchers have found the body of one of three fishermen missing since their boat capsized on a river in southern West Virginia.

National Park Service spokesman David Caldwell says the victim was found about noon today some 400 yards downstream from the accident scene on the New River. The 12-foot flat-bottomed fishing boat capsized Sunday. Two other men aboard made it to shore.

Searchers are still looking for the other two missing fishermen.

Authorities have not released the names of any of the fishermen.
