EUFAULA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the body of a second boater who went missing on Lake Eufaula a week ago has been recovered.
Authorities found the body of 41-year-old Sean McDonald late Friday about 250 yards from shore in McIntosh County. A search crew had recovered 23-year-old James Giles’ body on Tuesday in water about 14 feet deep.
The men were last seen this past Saturday leaving the Holiday Cove area on the lake in a canoe.
Authorities say the men were caught in a storm that caused their canoe to tip over and neither had a floatation device.
