June 24, 2012 |  1:49 pm

Divers recovered the bodies of two fishermen Sunday who went missing after their boat capsized in Orange County's Irvine Lake overnight.

Searchers had been combing the waters since the boat capsized about 12:30 a.m., said Orange County sheriff's Lt. Jim England. Firefighters were initially called to the scene after a security guard managed to save two of the men aboard, and crews immediately began looking for the missing men.

The sheriff's department took over the search early Sunday morning and found the first body about 10:20 a.m., England said. The second victim was found about 11:45 a.m.

The names of the victims have not been released.
