RICHARDSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The body of a southern Kentucky woman who disappeared after going over the Greencastle Dam in a small motorboat has been found.

Warren County Rescue Department spokeswoman Deborah Williams says the remains of 39-year-old Melissa Trent were found Friday evening and later identified by her father.

Trent was reported missing April 21 to the Warren County Sheriff's Office after being last seen in a small boat near the dam, just before the watercraft topped the dam and capsized in Barren River.

The Daily News reported (http://bit.ly/1fBhzli ) that the other person in the boat, 47-year-old Robert Lynn Tanner, made it to shore and was later arrested on outstanding warrants.

High water levels on the Barren River hindered search efforts.
