BEAVER, Okla. (AP) — Authorities have identified the woman and child who drowned in a northwest Oklahoma lake.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 48-year-old Betty Jean McManaway was seen running into Lake Evans Chambers Tuesday afternoon. Her body was recovered from the lake shortly thereafter, but crews continued to search for a 5-year-old boy who went missing in the water.

Early Thursday, crews recovered the body of 5-year-old Aiden Thompson from the lake. Both McManaway and Thompson were from Beaver.
