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.
