SHAVER LAKE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say they've recovered the body of a man who drowned in a Central California lake over the holiday weekend, and they are continuing to search for a second man who disappeared in another Central California lake.

Fresno County Sheriff's Lt. Rick Ko said the first man vanished Saturday afternoon near the dam at Shaver Lake. The lake is about 50 miles northeast of Fresno.

Ko tells the Fresno Bee that searchers have found the man's body. He has not been identified.

The search, meanwhile, is continuing at Hume Lake, where officials say a 27-year-old man visiting from Anaheim apparently drowned. Hume Lake is about 65 miles east of Fresno in the Sequoia National Forest.

The man disappeared while swimming Friday. Authorities say thick underwater vegetation has made the search difficult for divers.
