HENDERSON, Ky. (AP) - An initial search for more remains after a human leg turned up in the Ohio River turned up no results. But, Henderson County Chief Deputy Coroner Don Farris says it is likely a match will be found.

Farris told The Paducah Sun (https://bit.ly/1kwArOS ) that he feels confident about finding a match to the leg, which surfaced Friday near Henderson.

The coroner’s office sent the leg - two lower leg bones and a shoe- to the medical examiner’s office in Madisonville. Farris says there are several missing people in the tri-state area, increasing the likelihood of a DNA match being made.

The Henderson County Rescue Squad and the Henderson Dive Team searched near where the bones were found. Perry Township in Indiana sent a rescue boat with sonar equipment to assist.
