TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) - Divers have found the body of a second man who likely drowned after a canoe overturned in Donner Lake in Northern California.

Police in Truckee said 34-year-old Lucas Johnson was found Sunday in about 60 feet of water.

He and a friend, 33-year-old Joshua Patterson, went missing in the lake after the canoe capsized Friday amid strong winds and choppy water.

Patterson’s body was found Saturday in about 15 feet of water.

Police said the men were visiting the area and likely not wearing life jackets.

Johnson was from the Auburn area and Patterson was from the town of Cool.
