NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has recovered the body of one person missing after a weekend boating crash and continues searching for a second missing boater who is believed to be dead.

The patrol says the search resumed Tuesday after divers recovered the body of 33-year-old Brandon Michael Kelley of Moore on Monday.

Troopers say Kelley died when a boat he was driving collided with a second boat at 10:24 p.m. Saturday on Lake Thunderbird, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) southeast of Oklahoma City. Two people in the second boat were injured.

Divers and boats using sonar searched a one-square mile (2.6 square kilometers) area of the lake Monday. The patrol says both vessels have been recovered and that the cause of the accident is under investigation.
