OKLAHOMA CITY - Two men from Ponca City were killed by a tornado in Canada Thursday night.

Canadian authorities have identified the dead as Bernie Jackson, 65, and Stan Hollis, 79.

There are conflicting reports about the member of the group, Dennis Kinkaid, 66. 

Kinkaid had initially been listed as missing, but reports from Canada Friday afternoon indicated a search crew had found his body.

But now Canadian authorities say he is still missing.

The men were on a fishing trip at Fisherman's Cove on Lac Seul in Ontario, Canada, near Ear Falls, Ontario.

The location is about 500 miles north of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Watch video of the tornado on YouTube.

The storm hit between 9:00 and 9:15 p.m.

Police said several cabins were lifted off the ground during the storm, including one that was actually tossed into Lac Seul.

Police said all three men were staying in that cabin. 

Jackson was a retired teacher and principal.

He was active in the Oklahoma Retired Educators Association, serving as the chairman of the membership committee and as the association's north central district director. 

According to other members, he agreed to take that position when the original director resigned because of his wife's diagnosis of cancer.
