Crews search Barren River for missing woman

RICHARDSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Emergency crews in southern Kentucky are searching for a woman in Barren River after the boat she was in capsized as it topped the Greencastle Dam.

The Daily News (http://bit.ly/1f5qf2K) reports a man in the boat was able to swim to shore on Monday, but the woman was reported missing.

Warren County Rescue Department spokeswoman Deborah Williams said crews were conducting ground and water searches and using sonar to try to find the woman.

Chief Andy Tucker says rescue personnel are taking extra precautions because the low-head dam creates dangerous conditions.
