FOLSOM, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have identified the bodies of three men found in a California lake nearly a week after their boat capsized.

The El Dorado County Coroner says searchers recovered the bodies of 54-year-old Toby Strauch and 53-year-old Gerald Jacobs in Folsom Lake, just east of Sacramento, on Saturday.

KCRA-TV reports that earlier Saturday the coroner's office said a body of one of the missing boaters recovered on Friday was 47-year-old James Andrew Strauch.

Crews will continue searching the waters for a fourth boater, 48-year-old Jon Smith.

Authorities say the men went missing May 10 when their 32-foot speed boat capsized near Beals Point after traveling more than 100 miles per hour.

Investigators have not said what caused the boat to capsize.

California Parks' officials say Folsom Lake does not have a speed limit for boats in open water.
