LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A girl's body has been pulled from the Ohio River, and authorities are trying to determine whether it's that of a child who went missing when a boat capsized.

Louisville police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley said police were called about 6 p.m. Tuesday after a towboat operator spotted the body. That was about six hours after the body of an adult female was found upstream.

Neither body has been identified.

Nine people were aboard the pontoon boat when it capsized Saturday night after it slammed into a barge. Five people didn't make it out of the water, including a man whose body was pulled from the river that night and a teenager who died at the scene.
