Authorities say they're searching for a body in the Ohio River at Point Pleasant.

They say two people reported seeing the body floating in the river around 9 p.m. Wednesday.

According to authorities, the people who reported seeing the body said the person had black hair, was wearing a blue flannel shirt and tennis shoes.

Water rescue crews from the Point Pleasant and Gallipolis Fire Departments as well as crews on two AEP barges searched the river Wednesday night.

Heavy rain forced them to call off the search around eleven Wednesday night.

Crews are returning to the river Thursday morning.
