Two Drowning Victims Recovered from Creek

The bodies of two people were recovered from a creek in southern Muskogee County, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported. The OHP reported the bodies of Emma Reece, 63, of Webbers Falls and Wade Kellogg, 56, of Fort Gibson were both transported to the state medical examiner's office in Tulsa after being recovered.  The OHP reported the first report was received Friday. A resident of the area, near what is known as Dirty Creek between Webbers Falls and Warner, told the media he had gone to see how high the water was in the creek after last week's storms when he saw a pickup in the water. The OHP responded and found Reece's body in the truck on Friday. Information that another person may have been with Reece lead to a search by the OHP Marine Enforcement Division on Saturday morning. Kellogg's body was found at 9 a.m. about a quarter mile downstream from the county road which crossed the creek at a low-water bridge, the OHP reported.
