2nd body found where 2 missing in Pa. river

DRUMORE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in central Pennsylvania say a second body has been found in the Susquehanna River in the area where a capsized boat left two men missing over the weekend.

The (Lancaster) Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era (http://bit.ly/11gnZbv ) says the body was recovered Tuesday evening in Fulton Township near the Peach Bottom nuclear plant.

Lancaster County Coroner Stephen Diamantoni says a representative was sent to the scene to investigate.

Authorities earlier Tuesday confirmed that a body found Monday in the river was that of 20-year-old Cody Moyer of Reading.

He was one of the men reported missing after the craft overturned at about 6 p.m. Saturday just south of the nuclear plant.

Still missing is 21-year-old Jonny Velez of Reading. A third man swam to shore.
