MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities say the bodies of two men have been discovered inside a submerged truck that's registered to an Oklahoma man who's been missing for a year.

The Moore Police Department says the bodies of 67-year-old Charles Ervin Moore and 65-year-old Larry Matthews were discovered Monday in a truck submerged in the pond in Moore, about 9 miles south of Oklahoma City.

Workers at a Moore business notified police at about 5:30 p.m. that a truck was partially sticking out of a pond behind the business. Police say the truck's license plate matches a vehicle owned by Moore, a Purcell man missing since July 2018.

Authorities say the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is investigating whether there is evidence of trauma to the victims' bodies.
