  The bodies of two Missouri boaters are now been recovered after the men went missing on the Mississippi River near Hartford in southern Illinois.

   Illinois conservation police said Monday that 46-year-old Wendell Robinson of Bellefontaine Neighbors, Mo., was found Sunday in the river at Cape Girardeau, Mo. The body of the other boater, 60-year-old Mike Flythe of St. Louis, was found April 21. Authorities say the men's boat capsized near where the Mississippi and Missouri rivers meet on April 6.

   The Telegraph in Alton reports that Flythe's body was found about 15 miles away from the accident scene. Robinson's body was missing for 22 days and found about 100 miles away.

   One boy was rescued after the accident.

   What began as a river rescue is now a recovery operation.  

   A small fishing boat capsized on the Mississippi River Saturday afternoon, dumping two men and a 10 year old boy into the wind torn water.  

   A towboat crew found the boy and pulled him to safety.

   More than two dozen fire and rescue crews spent the day Sunday searching for the boy's step-father and another man, but both are still missing.  Hartford Fire Assistant Chief Bill Owens says they searched in the water and along the banks from Hartford, Illinois south to the Chain of Rocks Bridge.

   By Sunday afternoon Owens expressed little hope that the men would be found alive.  

   Owens says the boy was wearing a life jacket when he was pulled from the water.  It's not known if the men were wearing theirs, since two life jackets have been found in the area.

   Crews will resume searching Monday morning using sonar provided by the Illinois Conservation Department.
