NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ A fisherman discovered a second human foot at the Hog Creek campground area of Lake Thunderbird, authorities said Thursday.
The foot, still inside a running shoe, is believed to match another foot and shoe discovered in March, said Capt. Doug Blaine of the Cleveland County Sheriff's Department.
Although a body has not been discovered, Blaine said the foot appears to be that of a female.
``(The fisherman) saw it resting by the shoreline, very few feet away from where the other one was,'' Blaine said Thursday. ``It appears that it just washed up to the bank, is what I'm told.''
After the discovery of the first foot by park maintenance crews March 22, a cadaver-sniffing dog was dispatched to the area. Though diving crews canvassed the area once, inclement weather forced them to abandon search efforts.
``The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is supposed to come out this morning and attempt to dive,'' Blaine said. ``It is a lot better (weather) than it was last time ... It was just so cold, the divers couldn't stay down to be effective.''
Officials also were researching the possibility of matching the foot to a missing person or an individual who may have suffered a boating injury.
``We've pretty much exhausted the missing-person theory,'' he said.
