MCCURTAIN COUNTY, OK (KSLA) -

Rescue workers along with a dive team will enter its third day as they continue their search for six-year-old Dalton Lycklama along the Little River in McCurtain County on Wednesday morning.

Family members have joined the search with their own boats, ongoing since Sunday, when his father's body was discovered with their submerged boat.  

Oklahoma State Police, McCurtain County Sheriff deputies and Broken Bow Fire and Rescue spent Monday searching for the bodies of Dalton and his brother, eight-year-old Devin, whose body was found Monday afternoon.

Lycklama and the two boys were on the river Sunday when the boat is believed to have become caught in some strong currents and capsized.

They say neither of the bodies were found wearing life jackets.

Friends, classmates and community members who would like to support the Lycklama family are welcome to make donations to the First State Bank in Valliant, OK, where a fund has been established.
