Oklahoma City_A body found in McClain County during the summer of 2003 has been identified as that of a missing Lawton teenager.

The cause of her death has not been determined.

Hook was last seen in Lawton on June 30, 2003.

Her skeletal remains were found nearly two months later in a ditch north of Oklahoma Highway 74-B near the town of Cole in northern McClain County.
