The canoe of 2 men reported missing since Sunday was found during a search that continued today at Lake Eufaula.

James Giles, 23, and Sean McDonald, 41, both from Henryetta, were reported missing Sunday evening, by family members, after the pair did not return from a canoe trip, said Lt. John Vincent, Public Information Officer for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

“We have a trooper en route this morning to continue the search,” Lt. John Vincent said Monday. “Family reported them missing after they did not return yesterday evening.”

The search began shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday from aircraft. However, today they will be searching by boat, Vincent said.

It has been reported by various media outlets that the men were last seen between 11 p.m. and midnight Saturday leaving the Holiday Cove area on the lake in a canoe.

It was not known whether they were wearing flotation devices.
