ST. PAUL, Ind. (AP) — Indiana officials say they’ve recovered the body of a man wearing clothing similar to that of a 20-year-old Indianapolis man who went missing from a campground.

Indiana Department of Natural Resources officials said Monday afternoon that the body was recovered Monday at about 11 a.m. from water in White Rock Park in central Indiana. The Shelby County coroner pronounced the man dead at the scene. Earlier Monday, conservation officers said they were using boats and sonar to search for Christopher Demarrco Easton, who was last seen at about 5:30 p.m. Sunday on park property.

Authorities say the man found Monday morning was wearing similar swimming trunks, shoes and glasses last seen on Easton. Officials say the Shelby County coroner will conduct a positive identification, autopsy and toxicology report Tuesday.
