ARDMORE, OK - After six days of searching, authorities have finally found the body of a missing Ardmore fisherman. Around noon Tuesday, OHP sonar helped locate 83-year-old Billy Sharp in Lake Scott King.

Sharp was last seen Thursday fishing on a boat at the lake. Witnesses called police after seeing his boat capsized in the water. Authorities believe it was a drowning, but that has yet to be confirmed by the medical examiner.

The lake will reopen to the public Tuesday afternoon.
