Bodies of 2 missing boaters found in Trigg County

CADIZ, Ky. (AP) — The bodies of two missing boaters in Trigg County have been found.

Multiple media outlets report the bodies of 52-year-old Michael Bussell and his 13-year-old son NyDarion Bussell, both of Hopkinsville, were found Saturday afternoon in the Lake Barkley.

Trigg County Public Affairs Officer James Flood says Trigg County Rescue, along with Emergency Medical Services and Trigg County Sheriff’s Department were called to help search for the missing boaters who fell out of a boat that afternoon.

Flood says the boy fell into the water and the father jumped in to try to save him. Neither was wearing a life jacket.
