Authorities in southeastern Pennsylvania say a man searching the Susquehanna River for the body of his missing father found the man's body - but not before he also found the body of a missing woman. Officials in Lancaster County say the body of 62-year-old Kenneth Kauffman was found in the river shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday. The York County businessman had been missing since December.

But Manor Township police Sgt. James Alexander says the searcher found a woman's body earlier in the afternoon about six or seven miles upriver on the York County side of the river.

Authorities say there were no signs of foul play and they do not believe the two cases were related.

The Lancaster County coroner's office says autopsies on the bodies will be done Monday.
