The body of Cameron Buerger, 20, was located about five miles upstream from where his friend, Marty Stanaford, 19, was found last week.  The Bracken County Coroner’s Office in Kentucky made the identification.

The friends went missing May 3 while on a canoeing trip.  Teams of volunteers and first responders spent every day since then working to find the men.
