An Ohio County man's body has been found in the Green River after he drowned six days ago.
Muhlenberg and Butler County officials found 23-year old Ray Casteel's body about a half mile below the Rochester Dam.
According to the Muhlenberg County Coroner, preliminary autopsy results show Casteel drowned.
Casteel and a friend were walking along the river's bay last week when Casteel slipped from the rocks and fell into the river.
His family says he couldn't swim and authorities say his friend ran down the bank of the river and tried, but was unable to catch him.
Authorities do not suspect foul play.
