LOGAN, Ohio (AP) – The bodies of two men who went missing while swimming at Hocking Hills State Park have been recovered.

The two men were last seen using a rope swing at Rose Lake on Sunday.

One of the men swung into the water but soon began struggling, and the other jumped in to try to help him. Both men then soon disappeared under the water.

Authorities were called to the lake around 2:45 p.m., and the bodies were recovered a short time later. The names of the two men and further details have not been disclosed.
