Body of missing tuber found near Franklinton

Franklinton, La. - The body of a missing tuber was discovered Wednesday afternoon in the Bogue Chitto River, according to the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office says the body of 22 year-old Melanie Borja was found around 1:15pm about a half-mile from the tubing company that she and a group of friends had departed from last Sunday.

That same area had been previously searched earlier in the day. Search teams brought in cadaver dogs to search that area again.

Borja was last seen when she jumped off her tube and began swimming.
