FALLS TOWNSHIP, WYOMING COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) — A body was recovered from the Susquehanna River in Falls, Wyoming County earlier today.

A number of units responded to the scene near the boat launch off route 92 in falls., including a state police forensic unit.

Residents in the quiet neighborhood say it was an unusual sight but they recall a similar scene a couple years back.

“Something big. Yes, because they don’t have a lot of manpower in Wyoming County, a large area to cover. So, to see this kind of concentration looks like something was going on. It looked like something, something went down because I remembered the search for Hailey Lorenzen and you know there’s like a lot more vehicles and people here than that,” stated Jay Yudiskas, a nearby neighbor.

Pennsylvania State Police Tunkhannock is handling the investigation. We will update you with the latest information as it becomes available.
