EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A restored World War II troop landing ship that spent two days stuck in a western Kentucky lake has arrived back at its Indiana home port.

The LST-325 pulled into its Ohio River dock at Evansville Thursday evening after being freed a day earlier from Lake Barkley.

Relatives of crew members and others waited for the ship's arrival. Betty Voelker tells WFIE-TV she was disappointed when the ship was stranded with her husband, Jim, on board.

The ship's captain told the Evansville Courier & Press that it wasn't damaged.

The ship was returning to Evansville after a trip on the Cumberland River to Tennessee for stops at Nashville and Clarksville.
