CUMBERLAND, W. Va. (KDKA) – Authorities are working to identify a body found in the Ohio River.

A barge crew spotted the body Wednesday evening near Cumberland, W. Va., according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. An autopsy is being performed.

Authorities are investigating the possibility the body might be one of two men missing from Beaver County since January, including an 18-year-old student from Geneva College.

Devon Minor disappeared last month. He was last seen at a dining hall on campus.

Investigators found his wallet, iPod, cell phone and jacket inside his dorm room.

An FBI agent aided in the search, but after several days, the search was called off.
