Search continues for two men in Ohio River

        BATAVIA — Authorities will continue searching the Ohio River banks this week for two Pendleton County, Ky., men who are feared drowned after their boat capsized May 13 while they fished near Meldahl Dam.

        The search for Danny Eaton, 27, of Foster, and Robert Wood, 24, of Falmouth, will be concentrated primarily between the dam and New Richmond on the Ohio side of the river, Clermont County Sheriff A.J. Rodenberg said Monday.

        Divers can't be used because of the river's condition and the broad search area.

        The dam's gates were opened Monday, so the bodies could have floated through onto the Cincinnati side.

        “Once the water temperature rises and the river falls, the bodies should surface,” the sheriff said. “Now the time has come to change our strategy. We'll be doing what we can to help the families bring this to a conclusion.”
