BUCKEYE LAKE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities have found the body of a second boater presumed drowned in a central Ohio lake after a fishing boat capsized.

A spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources says searchers found the man Monday in Buckeye Lake, where the 16-foot aluminum boat capsized Friday.

The agency identified him as 61-year-old Jason Lewis of Columbus.

The body of another boater was recovered Friday. He was identified as 62-year-old Gary Cook, also of Columbus.

Officials said the water was only a few feet deep when the boat capsized near Millersport, but the lake was cold — about 43 degrees.

The spokeswoman says neither boater was wearing a life jacket.
