The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a body believed to be one of two missing boaters was recovered at about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday on Lake Eufaula.

The OHP says the body of 23-year-old James Michael Giles was found in 15 feet of water about 150 yards from where the canoe was located on Monday.

Giles and 41-year-old Sean McDonald were last seen between 11 p.m. and midnight Saturday leaving the Holiday Cove area on the lake in a canoe. A search got underway Sunday evening for the two cousins.

Troopers are now concentrating their search for the second body in the same area.
