OSAGE COUNTY, Oklahoma -- Authorities have identified the man whose body was recovered Wednesday morning at Diamond Head on Keystone Lake.

He is 19-year-old Blayne Dalton Davis of Tulsa.  Davis had been reported missing by his mother after he went camping on the evening of March 7th and had not returned home.

"She was very concerned because of a health condition and medication her son needs," said Osage County Undersheriff Lou Ann Brown. "The last time the family heard from him was Monday just before midnight."

His body was recovered from the Diamond Head beach area east of Highway 412 on Keystone Lake at about 9:40 a.m Wednesday.

Lieutenant George Brown with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said that Davis' body was found in the water about 10 yards from shore on the east side of Highway 412.

The Osage County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death as a homicide. 

At this point, investigators don't know if Davis' death was accidental or if foul play was involved.  No charges are filed, but investigators with the Osage County Sheriff's Office are talking with the two people who went camping with Davis.

"They were camping, and that they couldn't find him and went ahead and left," Undersheriff Lou Ann Brown said. "And that's when Mom made a report because she couldn't make contact with him anywhere."

While investigators work to learn more about Davis and the days and hours he was last seen alive, his body is at the medical examiner's office where a cause of death will be determined.

Investigators say his body doesn't show any obvious signs of trauma or injuries.
