OOLOGAH LAKE, Okla. - The search resumed Friday for the body of a man thought to have drowned in Oologah Lake Thursday.
Thirty-five-year-old Jeremy Brewer, of Inola, was fishing with a cousin and uncle Thursday when high winds sent a large wave over their boat around noon.
Ottie Brewer, 56, and his son Damon Brewer, 30, were able to grab life jackets and they tried to get one to Jeremy, Ottie's nephew, but were unsuccessful.
Ottie and Damon Brewer made it to shore but Jeremy Brewer hasn't been located.
Ottie and Damon Brewer were transported by life flight and ambulance to local hospitals in critical and serious conditions. Family said they suffered injuries to their backs, necks and legs.
Damon Brewer has since been released from the hospital.
By Thursday afternoon, the rescue effort turned to that of a recovery. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol used sonar to search for Jeremy Brewer but windy conditions made it difficult. A number of other agencies assisted in the effort.
As the sun went down, the search for Jeremy Brewer was halted around 6 p.m. Crews resumed the search first thing Friday morning.
