POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities are scaling back efforts to find a 9-year-old Utah boy feared to have drowned in the South Fork of the Shoshone River in Wyoming.
Searchers have been trying to find the body of Tyler Hatch of Eagle Mountain, Utah, since a horse threw him into the fast-running river on July 2.
The Powell Tribune reports that Park County Sheriff Scott Steward plans to have searchers in kayaks go down the river weekly starting Saturday.
About 65 volunteers searched for Tyler's body on Saturday on 35 on Sunday.
A body believed to be Tyler's was spotted about four hours after he fell into the river, but bad weather prevented kayakers from getting to spot immediately. By the time they got there, the body had been swept away.
