CLAIBORNE COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) - An 80-year-old man appears to have drowned in the Mississippi River. Claiborne County Sheriff Martin Lucas says his office was called when 80-year-old Alfred McGriggs went fishing Sunday and didn't return.

McGriggs body was found at 6:45 Monday morning inside his submerged truck on a ramp into the Mississippi River at Grand Gulf Port. The truck appeared to have rolled too far down the ramp while McGriggs was loading and unloading his boat.

An autopsy will confirm the cause of death but the sheriff says it appears that McGriggs drowned.
