Ronnie Dooley of Taylor County Emergency Management said that body has been identified as Harold Wethington, 77. The search is ongoing for the other missing hunter and will resume Sunday morning.

The men launched the boat Friday morning around 9 a.m. from the lake's spillway, and were expected to return around noon. When they did not return, family members called police. Crews found the men's vehicle still in the parking lot of the boat ramp, and the search began.
