Crews search local river for body

CLAY COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Crews from three Region 8 counties continued a search of the Little Black River Thursday.

Clay County Sheriff Terry Miller tells Region 8 News Thursday was the third time they've searched just south of Success near highway 211 in Clay County.

Miller says a local resident reported seeing a body in the river three weeks ago. Miller added they won't do another search until the river goes down a little more.

Sheriff Miller didn't give any names, but he did say there are two people from Butler County listed as "missing" at this time.

The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department Dive Team and officers from the Butler County Sheriff’s Department aided in the search.
