CALVERT CITY, Ky. (WPSD) — Recovery efforts are continuing in western Kentucky for a woman who presumably drowned in the Tennessee River.

WPSD reports that officals have been searching since Friday near Calvert City in Marshall County, where 37-year-old Brandy Osborne.

The stations says rescue crews from Marshall, Lyon and Trigg counties all have been using boats to look for the Illinois native near the Wepfer Marine.

Officials said they believe Osborne didn't know the depth of the water she was in when she was swept away while trying to get to a friend's boat.
