    GARLAND CITY, Ark. (AP) - The Miller County Sheriff's Office says a fisherman has found a body in the Red River in southwest Arkansas - but it isn't know yet if it is one of two men missing in the river since last week.

    Authorities told reporters that the body was found Thursday morning.

    Officials have been searching for 60-year-old Bill Cooper and 56-year-old John Fairbanks since their boat capsized last Friday north of the U.S. 82 bridge that connects Miller and Lafayette counties near Garland City.

    A woman who was also in the boat was rescued by other fishermen and was treated and released at a Texarkana hospital.
