The Green County Coroner said they recovered the body of the second hunter who went missing this weekend.

According to the coroner, Larry Stokes, 57, was found 11 miles down the stream just before 10 a.m. on Sunday.

She said Harold Wethington, 76, was found Saturday afternoon.

The coroner said both men died from drowning.

Emergency crews said the two were out hunting in the Roachville Area on Friday. They said they were in a boat while the water was high and extremely dangerous.

Investigators said there weren’t any witnesses, and they don’t know what happened to cause the hunters to fall out of the boat.

The coroner said the men had both made this trip many times before and were experienced hunters.
