ALEXANDRIA, Ky. (AP) - Authorities in northern Kentucky are investigating the discovery of a body found wedged between coal barges on the Ohio River.

Campbell County police said a barge crew member saw the body and the captain notified authorities Tuesday afternoon.

Police said it’s not known when the barge came into contact with the body but that it appeared the body had been in the river for some time.

Investigators are seeking help identifying the man and described him as about 5 feet 6, 180 pounds and about 50 years old, wearing cut-off jeans with a black leather belt. The man had a long vertical surgical scar extending across the length of the abdomen.

Report information to police at (859) 547-3100 or the county coroner’s office at (859) 441-8800.
