The body of a second victim from a boating accident at Buckeye Lake has been found. It happened this afternoon.   The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says on Friday the men were in a 16-foot aluminum boat when it capsized near Millersport.  The other boater was recovered Friday and was identified as Gary Cook of Columbus. Officials said the water was about 3 feet deep where the boat capsized, but the water was about 43 degrees. Crews in six boats searched the lake this past weekend, while the Ohio State Highway Patrol searched from the air.
