WILMINGTON, Ohio — Two bodies were recovered Tuesday evening from a vehicle found in a Clinton County lake, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources said.

David Roorbach, public information officer for the Ohio DNR, said crews arrived at Cowan Lake in Wilmington after two adults were reported missing. The DNR requested dive team assistance after identifying a target of interest about 10 feet underwater.

Crews brought a tow truck to pull a truck out of the water after 5:15 p.m. Two bodies were recovered inside the vehicle.

The DNR said the Clinton County Coroner's Office will identify the bodies. The DNR is leading the ongoing investigation, and officers were assisted by the Loveland-Symmes Task Force 1 dive team and the Clinton County Sheriff's Office.
