Body of boy missing after boat sank recovered


BURBANK - The body of Timothy Bowden was recovered Saturday. The 14-year-old disappeared when the boat he was in sank last Sunday after launching from Hood Park on the Snake River.

Walla Walla County Sheriff John Turner said around 2 p.m. a boater spotted something that looked like a body off Crescent Island near Boise Cascade on the Columbia River.

A sheriff's boat was already in the area searching for Bowden and was dispatched to recover the body.

There is still no report on the cause of the sinking.

There were four other people in the boat at the time who were able to swim ashore.
