ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Authorities in eastern Ohio think they’ve recovered the bodies of two men who were on a stolen boat that capsized in the Muskingum River.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says autopsies are being conducted to determine their identities.

Both bodies were found Friday.

The first body was found Friday afternoon in Morgan County and the second was found Friday night in Zanesville.

Authorities say a boat stolen Tuesday capsized that day.

Witnesses told authorities they saw the men struggling to stay above water.
