One man is dead and another is missing after a boat capsized on Kaw Lake, off the Arkansas River, said the Oklahoma Highway Patrol's Lake Patrol division.

The accident occurred at 11 p.m. Sunday.

Andrew Ernest Woodring, Jr., 19, from Kaw City, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Joseph Dean Shrader, 32, from Ponca City had not been located late Monday evening.

Authorities said Woodring and Shrader went out at dark with Andrew Carson Ancell, 43, Ponca City, to run their jug lines. The boat then started to fill with water and capsized.

All three men attempted to swim to shore.
