The family of Jeremy Brewer says his body has been found in Lake Oologah.

OHP officials say Brewer's body was found in the Skull Hollow area.  Last Thursday, around 11:50 neighbors behind Oologah Lake heard screaming from three people.

Troopers said Olen Brewer, 56, Damen Brewer, 30 and Jeremy Brewer, 35, were fishing on Will Rogers Cove when their 16 foot 1986 Charger bassboat capsized during high winds and waves. A large wave came over the boat causing it to sink.

Rescue crews said as the victims attempted to swim to shore, Olen and Damen Brewer were able to retrieve flotation devices. Jeremy Brewer could not and went under water and never resurfaced.

Troopers said Olen Brewer was life flighted to a Tulsa hospital where he had water in his lungs. He is in stable condition. Damen Brewer was treated and released after suffering a shoulder injury.

Olen and Damen Brewer are from Oologah and Jeremy Brewer is from Inola.
