McALESTER, Okla. (AP) — Authorities have recovered a body from a creek that extends from Lake Eufaula in eastern Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the body was pulled from Gaines Creek on the southern end of the lake about 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

The OHP says the body was first spotted in the creek about five hours earlier about three miles from a boat ramp.

The body has not been identified and the OHP said it was sent to the state medical examiner’s office to determine the cause of death.
