A man who was reported missing from a capsized boat in the North Fork of the Lewis River in Southwest Washington has been found dead.

Sunday afternoon, 65-year-old Randy Greer and 65-year-old Robert Stevenson were in a small aluminum boat when it hit a pole and started taking on water.

Greer was rescued by another boater. Stevenson was taken away by the current.

Searchers used a drone today over the river and found Stevenson's body about a half-mile down stream. His body was recovered by the Clark County Sheriff's Office Marine Patrol.

Neither man was wearing a life jacket.
