    Authorities in central Pennsylvania say a second body has been found in the Susquehanna River in the area where a capsized boat left two men missing over the weekend.

    The (Lancaster) Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era says the body was recovered Tuesday evening in Fulton Township near the Peach Bottom nuclear plant.
     
    Lancaster County Coroner Stephen Diamantoni says a representative was sent to the scene to investigate.
     
    Authorities earlier Tuesday confirmed that a body found Monday in the river was that of 20-year-old Cody Moyer of Reading.
     
    He was one of the men reported missing after the craft overturned at about 6 p.m. Saturday just south of the nuclear plant.
     
    Still missing is 21-year-old Jonny Velez of Reading. A third man swam to shore.

    Boating accidents resulted in more than 3,000 injuries and 650 deaths just last year, according to the U.S Coast Guard's Recreational Boating Statistics report.
