FORT GIBSON, Okla. (AP) – The body of a man whose boat was found on Fort Gibson Lake in eastern Oklahoma has been recovered.

Trooper Dwight Durant with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said that the body of 51-year-old Zane Howe was spotted in the lake near the Wildwood Public Use Area Monday morning. The body was recovered about 30 minutes later.

Durant said that a search for Howe started after his boat was discovered floating in the lake Sunday night. Authorities say Howe’s pickup and boat trailer were found backed up into the water at a boat ramp near where his body was located.

The cause of death is under investigation.
