BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Divers on Monday recovered the body of an Indianapolis man who went missing in Monroe Lake in south central Indiana, conservation officers said.

Officers said 34-year-old David Alejendor Mora-Segura was boating with friends when he disappeared around 2 p.m. Sunday beneath the surface of the lake south of Bloomington.

Emergency crews searched for Mora-Segura until nightfall, when the operation was suspended.

Crews resumed the search Monday morning and located Mora-Segura around 2:45 p.m. in 20 feet (6.1 meters) of water.

Mora-Segura was wearing a personal flotation device when he entered the water but appeared to have slipped out of it, officers said.
