HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The body of a 3-year-old girl who had been missing since a boating accident in Pennsylvania that killed her mother and injured her father has been recovered.

Officials say Madelyn Binkley’s body was recovered last Thursday. She was in a boat with her mother, Mary Bredbenner, and her father, Cody Binkley, when it capsized Monday night in the Susquehanna River off Harrisburg. Bredbenner’s body was recovered last Tuesday.

The father was treated at a hospital for hypothermia. The body of a family dog also was pulled from the river.

Authorities haven't determined what caused the boat to capsize.
