ID Of Bodies Found In Okla. Lake May Take Years

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma sheriff says it could take years to identify skeletal remains found in two cars that were discovered in a lake and may have been submerged for decades.

Custer County Sheriff Bruce Peoples said Thursday it could take a few days or years, or that it may be impossible, to identify the remains depending on quality of DNA samples.

The Oklahoma medical examiner's office says an anthropologist is examining six bodies recovered from Foss Lake.

The remains were found Tuesday after a dive team testing sonar equipment discovered a 1969 Camaro and an early 1950s Chevrolet.

The teenager who owned the Camaro disappeared with two friends in 1970. Authorities believe the other car may reveal the bodies of 2 men and a woman who disappeared in 1969.
