Tragedy at the Wichita Mountains

 The body of a missing camper was found Monday by search and rescue personnel at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. The long search began Sunday for Don Becker, 45, of Oklahoma City.  He headed out to the refuge on Friday.  Becker had set up his camp at Doris Campground and left his camp and car behind to possibly go on a hike.

Assisting in the search was a search and rescue team from Johnson County, Texas; the Lawton and Fort Sill Fire Departments; the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Comanche County Sheriff's Department and Emergency Services.

The body was found a short distance east of the Osage Lake dam. Comanche County Sheriffs confirmed him to be Becker.

The cause of death has not yet been determined.
