WILBURTON, Okla. (AP) – The search has resumed for a man who went missing while canoeing on a lake in an eastern Oklahoma state park.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the search resumed at daybreak Monday for the man, who disappeared while canoeing with two others on Carlton Lake at Robbers Cave State Park. The highway patrol says the canoe carrying three people overturned Sunday, but another person in a paddle boat was able to help two of them to safety.

A third person went under the water and did not resurface.

Crews searched Sunday for the man but suspended the search at nightfall.
