CINCINNATI (AP) – Authorities say they’ve found the body of a 73-year-old man who drove a tractor into the Ohio River.

Cincinnati police say they recovered Ed Wiwi’s body near the Schmidt Boat Launch Sunday night. Authorities had been searching for Wiwi since he drove a tractor over a wall dropping into the Ohio River Friday afternoon.

Crews scoured the river for hours looking for the Cincinnati man, but couldn’t find him.

Police don’t suspect foul play.
