CULVER, Ind. - The body of a 28-year-old man was recovered from a public beach where he had been swimming on the Fourth of July.
After a short search, crews pulled the body of Jose Cruz Lizcano-Fernandez, 28, of Logansport, from about 5 feet of water at Culver Public Beach.
Lizcano-Fernandez was found about 15 feet outside the swim area at the Lake Maxinkuckee beach in Marshall County in northern Indiana.
The Department of Natural Resources said Lizcano-Fernandez had been missing for four to five hours before family members noticed he was gone.
"When friends searched for Jose, they located his shoes at the water's edge then notified police just before 9 p.m.," said Indiana Conservation Officer Jonathon Boyd. Indiana conservation officers and other emergency personnel responded with divers and sonar. In about 30 minutes, Jose was found."
The Marshall County coroner will conduct an autopsy.
