LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The bodies of two missing boaters have been recovered from Lake Maumelle, a day after the search for the men began.

A spokesman for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission says a dive team located the bodies of Anthony Mayfield and Joseph Greenway Thursday at about 2:30 p.m.

Their bodies have been sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab to determine the cause of death.

On Wednesday, a woman called police after she saw an unoccupied boat circling in the lake about 20 miles west of Little Rock and a man in the water. Another witness told police he saw a man thrown from the boat.

Pulaski County Sheriff’s officers responded and began a water search and rescue operation that lasted until about 10 p.m. Wednesday.
