Bodies of 1 boy, father recovered from river; Second child not yet located

MCCURTAIN COUNTY, OK (KSLA) - A search began for Steve Lycklama's two sons Devin and Dalton Sunday afternoon, when their boat capsized on the Little River in McCurtain County, Oklahoma.

Oklahoma State Police say around 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon, fishermen spotted a boat partially underwater and when they pulled it to shore the body of Steve was underneath, and his leg entangled in a chain.

As family and friends watched, emergency crews searched the river for the two missing children. Just after noon on Monday, the body of one of the boys was pulled from the river.

Police say they believe the boat was traveling the Little River when it got caught in a strong current and pulled over a waterfall.

Officials say this is not the first time this section of the Little River has taken a life.

The Oklahoma State Police say they will continue to search for the second child until he is found.
