The Oklahoma Highway Patrol confirms they've found the bodies of two Okmulgee County men who went missing from the Rocklahoma concert festival in Pryor on May 22.

OHP said they found Cody Parrick and Ben Babar inside a vehicle submerged at the Onapa boat ramp on Lake Eufaula in McIntosh County Sunday evening.

Troopers said they received a call just before 8 p.m. of a submerged vehicle at the ramp.  When it was pulled from the water, the bodies of both men were found inside.

Dozens of volunteers and officials from several counties have been searching for Parrick and Baber the past two weeks. A vigil was held Saturday night at the Rocklahoma grounds near Pryor in an effort to "light the way home" for the two men.
