What didn't law enforcement or the families think to look in the lake before?

I'm kind of fascinated with this story.  It's kind of sad to think that the three missing teens that had been missing for so long were so close.  Now with so much time passed there's finally some closure but who for family is around anymore...?  Also, wasn't there some kind of famous story about some husband that went to prison for murdering his wife and she ended up being found in a car at the bottom of a lake a few days after he died in prison. The husband maintained his innocence the whole time and he died in prison.  And then like a year or two after he died in prison the authorities find the wife's car with her in it at the bottom of a nearby lake.  She had hit a tree or something and went careening into the lake and sank straight to the murky bottom.


You would think that law enforcement when investigating the three missing teens would have dragged the local lakes, rivers, and ponds for the missing kids at some point.  So you've got three teens that are missing, they didn't pack anything so they didn't run away, and no one's seen the car.  I know they disappeared before there was closed circuit t.v., video cameras, cell phones, etc.,. but there's got to be some SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) that law enforcement or detectives follow for missing persons.  Like helicopters flying over the local area that have spotters with binoculars, mass search parties, bloodhonds,  dragging the local rivers and lakes, etc.,.

At some point in time you would think some cop, detective, investigator, family member, amateuer sleuth would be like, "Hey, have you guys ever thought of dragging the local lake?  It's really deep in some points and murky.  In addition there's no guardrails or anything to keep your car from careening into the lake.  Maybe that's what happened to the kids?  They were driving too fast and hit or were hit by something and went into the lake.  They were unconscious or unable to get out and are still down there?"

"No way!  They ran off to be hippies or something!  And all three for the last four decades never contacted anyone ever again! Never used their SS#s, names, called a family member around Xmas, and the car never turned up again. Nope, they couldn't possibly be at the bottom of the local lake all this time.  They're living like hippies somewhere, like in San Francisco, or some commune!"

But why bother dragging right by the boat ramp? It's not very deep there, and surely someone would have noticed a car getting in the way there. Besides, we did drag part of the lake and didn't hook any bodies.

How do you think they found the fire?

I woke up this morning for work and this was on the news.  Watched Fox news and they showed one of the explosions.  All I know is they said "oilfield chemicals" which can be any number of things but apparently enough of a problem to evacuate the surrounding area.

As far as the lake thing goes, go for at least a trifecta and search the rest of the lake.  I would wager that they could go to any of the numerous lakes in Oklahoma and find something.  I read a comment on the facebook story about if you go scuba diving in Lake Tenkiller, you can find an old town.  Not uncommon with some of these lakes that were "built" by damming up a river and simply relocating the town.  I remember old maps showing "Old Farris" in Atoka county but if you go to the spot on the map there is nothing there, save for a small "lake" that was dug for mining or the oilfield.
