A spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources said searchers found the man’s body Monday in Buckeye Lake, where the 16-foot aluminum boat capsized Friday.

The agency didn’t immediately release further details, including that man’s name. The body of another boater was recovered Friday. He has been identified as Gary Cook, 62, of Columbus.

Officials said the water was only a few feet deep when the boat capsized near Millersport, but the lake was cold — about 43 degrees.

The spokeswoman said neither boater was wearing a life jacket.
