OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- For the second time in a week, authorities in Oklahoma City have recovered a body from a central Oklahoma lake.

Police say the body washed up on the banks of Lake Overholser about 2:30 p.m. Saturday. The body was discovered by a woman who was walking around the lake and came ashore along the lake's southernmost edge.

Authorities have not identified the partially clothed body but police say it appears to be that of a teen or a young adult. They say there were no obvious signs of injury or trauma.

It's the second time in a week that a body has been discovered in Lake Overholser. The body of another teen was discovered in the lake on Feb. 24.

Police have not said whether the two bodies are connected.
