HARRISON COUNTY, Ky. (WDKY) - Authorities say a Harrison County fisherman is dead after crews discovered his body Thursday morning.

Sheriff Shain Stephens says search crews found the body of who is believed to be Porter Lamb, 77.

Crews resumed searching Thursday after high water put a hold on recovery efforts. Rescuers are bringing the body back to the ramp where the search started on Saturday.

Harrison County Search and Rescue says Lamb was found in water two miles downriver from the Terry Dam. He was found by a search team with a cadaver dog.

Lamb went fishing Saturday morning with another man when their boat capsized. The other man was able to swim to safety.
