Search finds body of teen in Mobile County lake; 2nd body sought

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Searchers have found the body of one of two teenagers who apparently drowned when they were pitched from a small boat in choppy waters of a lake in Mobile County, Alabama.

The body wasn't immediately identified, and search crews are continuing to look for the second body.

The two disappeared in the lake's waters late Monday morning. They had been fishing, and were being towed to shore when a wave overturned their small boat.

Authorities identified the boys who went under as 17-year-old Steven Fowler of Semmes and 16-year-old Timothy McDuffie of Petersburg, Tenn.
