Body Recovered from Arkansas River Near Moffett

The Oklahoma Lake Patrol has recovered a body from the Arkansas River that they believe is missing boater, William Farhat.

Earlier this evening the Fort Smith Police Dept. received a call from an individual on the Garrison Avenue Bridge who reported seeing a body in the water.

Moffett Police, the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Dept. and the Oklahoma Lake Patrol worked together to locate and recover the body. The body was on the Oklahoma side of the Arkansas River near Moffett.

Authorities are reporting that the body does match the description of Farhat but they are waiting on positive identification from the family.

Farhat and his wife Kristy have been missing since their boat capsized near Lock and Dam 14 close to the Spiro Mounds in Leflore County on Sunday. The couple's 6-year-old son died in the accident and their 4-year-old son survived with minor injuries.

We will update this developing story as more details are released.
