The search for a body in a LeFlore County lake ended Thursday evening after officials said the target areas were searched, but no body was found.

Authorities searched target areas at Lake Wister for the body, according to Smith.

Officials said they body of the missing 17-year-old female was not located and the LeFlore County DA's Task Force will be investigating further.

Officials from the Wister Police Department and the LeFlore County Sheriff’s Office both confirmed they were not assisting and had not been contacted about the search.

Smith said members of the local Violent Crime Task Force were also involved in the investigation. He confirmed officials spent most of the morning searching for the body, but no more details about the possible homicide victim have been released at this time.
