HOLDENVILLE, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma officials say they’ve recovered the bodies of two missing hunters in Hughes County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Monday that Oklahoma City residents Timothy Soult and Rodney Miles drowned Sunday at a private lake apparently after their all-terrain vehicle crashed.

The patrol had said an ATV was found overturned in the lake.

The men were first reported missing Sunday.

A state medical examiner’s office spokeswoman did not immediately return a message late Monday seeking more details on the cause of the deaths.
