MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) - Two men discover a possible human foot in Middletown.

Middletown police say two men were fishing in the Great Miami River Monday afternoon when they noticed what appeared to be a human foot on the east bank of the river, about 200 or 300 yards off a bike path.

The Middletown Police and the Butler County Sheriff's spent Tuesday morning combing the river and bank near the Route 4 overpass for additional body parts.

The search stopped for the day around 1:00 p.m. Police say no additional parts were found.

Police say the foot could belong to a man who was struck by a train three weeks ago in Miamisburg.

The foot has been taken to the Montgomery County Coroner's office to be examined.

Anyone with information about the case should call the Middletown Police at 513-425-7737.
