PATOKA —

The bodies of two men were recovered from Patoka Lake Sunday after being missing for almost a day.

Both Matt Buroker, 23, Evansville, and Ryan Dowdell, 22, Winslow, were found by conservation officers. Divers used sonar and underwater cameras to locate the men.

The two went missing after a boat they were in with two other men capsized in deep water near Hoosier Hills Marina. The four were participating in a bow fishing tournament.

According to a release from the conservation service, the water the boat capsized in was 35 feet deep and about 45 degrees.
