Body of missing wakesurfer found

STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA21) – After nearly three days of searching, the body of a missing wakesurfer at Clear Lake has been recovered.

Using a sonar unit, officers were able to search the area and locate the victim. Authorities say a conservation officer recovered the victim from a depth of 56 feet.

The victim has been identified as 20-year-old John Adams of Illinois. The cause of death for Adams was determined to be accidental asphyxia due to drowning.

An online community bulletin board for Clear Lake states that a vigil will be held tomorrow for Adams at 5 p.m. at Clear Lake Yacht Club. Organizers request those who attend to bring a candle to light in Adam’s honor.
