CLARKSDALE, MS -

(WMC-TV) - The body of 62-year-old Lige Robinson was found in the Sunflower River Friday afternoon.

Robinson was reportedly with a friend two weeks ago when he tried to canoe across the river to get a beach ball and his boat flipped.

His body was found by wildlife officials about 30 yards from where his friend said he fell in the water.

Investigators believe Robinson drowned.

His body will be sent to the State Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
