Second body recovered after Lake Erie search

GENEVA, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in northeastern Ohio say they have recovered the second body, after a search for two boaters who went missing after taking a small boat out on Lake Erie more than two weeks ago.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says the body of 19-year-old James Dorsey Wells of Fairport Harbor was recovered Sunday evening near Geneva State Park. Thirty-eight-year-old Cory Althar, of Madison, was found Friday night in the same area. The park sits along the water about 45 miles (72 kilometers) northeast of Cleveland.

Searchers previously found an overturned boat offshore in that area.
