It is now day two of the search for a young man who tried to cross the Tuscarawas River. Beginning at 8 Monday morning, divers and other emergency personnel were back in the Tuscarawas River in hope of recovering 25-year old James McHenry. McHenry who was visiting his brother in Canal Lewisville over the weekend, was pulled under the water when he decided to cross the river at a shallow point with three other friends. To help with the second day of recovery efforts, human scent dog teams from Athens took to the river in hopes of locating the young man. Also at the scene were family members who stood at the bank of the river keeping close watch and providing comfort. McHenry's younger brother Desi says that the family knows that James is gone, but they hope that his body is recovered so they can see him one more time. The Coshocton County Sheriff's Department suspended search efforts shortly before 9 Monday evening. They will continue Tuesday morning.
