ROXBORO, N.C. (AP) — Two bodies have been pulled from a North Carolina lake after an empty boat was found floating in the water

Authorities tell local media outlets a man’s body was recovered from Hyco Lake on Sunday afternoon. A woman’s body was pulled from the late last week.

The Person County Sheriff’s Office says a fisherman on Wednesday found an empty boat in the lake near the Person-Caswell county line. Crews recovered the body of Jill Caldwell of Yanceyville and continued to search for a man who had been with her.

On Sunday, crews recovered the body of Thomas Smith of Mebane.

Authorities say their boat had motor damage but are still investigating what happened.
