WAURIKA, Okla. -- One man is missing in what police are calling a possible drowning at Waurika Lake last week.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is still searching for a 64-year-man who was said to be last seen fishing at Waurika Lake. Police say Bobby Ray Bilbrey never returned home after fishing alone last Monday.

His fishing equipment and a chair were found on the bank where he was fishing. Police say they think he fell into the lake.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says they will search for Bilbrey by boat and by dragging the lake from during daylight hours until they find him.

Troopers have wrapped up their search Monday and say they plan to search again Tuesday morning.
