Posted: Updated:

BENTON CITY, Wash. - Benton County Sheriff's Deputies say they've recovered the body of a man from the Yakima River in the north part of Benton City. Rescue crews were called to the 75000 block of Demoss Road. Deputies had been in the area going house to house throughout the morning and early afternoon looking for the 70-year-old who lived nearby. He was said to have dementia. They'd also been searching on 4 wheelers and in an airplane. The Benton County Coroner is at the scene. We have a crew there as well waiting for more information.
