  • Rangers at the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, as well as the Oklahoma Highway Patrol dive team, Sulphur Fire Department and Oklahoma Fish and Game authorities, are searching for a juvenile who has been missing since Saturday.
    At 5:07 p.m., rangers received reports of a boat sinking near The Point swimming area on Lake of the Arbuckles at Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Three individuals from the boat ended up in the water. A fisherman was able to rescue two of the boaters out of the water, but a third boater, a juvenile, remains missing and is presumed drowned.
    The search was continuing Sunday afternoon despite weather conditions that hampered the search.
