The OKCFD Diving Team finds the missing 19-year-old body at Lake Hefner


A Oklahoma City Fire Department diving team found the body of a missing 19-year-old man at Lake Hefner Wednesday morning.

Early Tuesday morning, Durrell Anderson disappeared after misjudging a bend and driving his vehicle into Lake Hefner.

She and her 16-year-old sister were both in the vehicle when this happened.

The nurse was able to swim ashore and says she saw her brother escape the car after it got in but didn’t see it in the water.

The family says it will be okay, he spent some time in the hospital on Tuesday.

Crews were able to pull Anderson’s vehicle out of the water, and most of Tuesday was spent combing the lake.
