OOLOGAH — The search has resumed for an Oklahoma man who went missing when his fishing boat capsized on Oologah Lake.

The Rogers County Sheriff's Office says 35-year-old Jeremy Brewer was fishing with his uncle and cousin when their boat hit a wave Thursday and started to sink. A local television station reports that Brewer's uncle and cousin made it safely to shore but that Brewer disappeared in about 25 feet of water.

Authorities say the two survivors were taken to a Tulsa-area hospital where they were treated for hypothermia.

The search for Brewer was suspended Thursday at dark and resumed Friday morning.

Boat operator Olen Brewer, 56, of Oolagah was rescued and is in a Tulsa hospital being treated.

Also rescued was Damen Brewer, 30, of Oolagah who was on the boat. Damen Brewer is also in a Tulsa hospital being treated.

Officials say the boat capsized about two miles north of Oologah Dam on the west side of the lake.
