FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Police in Fort Smith say a man walking along the Arkansas River with his 3-year-old grandson found the body of a man in the river.

The body was found Wednesday afternoon by Tommy White - who says he was throwing sticks into the river with his grandson when he saw the dead man.
