ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities looking for two people reported in an eastern Ohio river plan to resume the search after an overnight break.

A Muskingum County Sheriff's Office dispatcher said the search suspended Wednesday evening would resume Thursday.

The Zanesville Times Recorder ( ) reports authorities received a call Tuesday about two people in the rain-swollen Muskingum River. A witness working nearby says a young man bobbing in the middle of the river called for help before disappearing downstream.

Authorities found boat debris and suspect the two people in the water were boaters.

Authorities responding after the initial call for help found the body of a different man in the water later Tuesday. The sheriff says he was identified as a 67-year-old Blue Rock man who'd been missing for more than a week.
