Indiana Conservation Officers were dispatched to the Patriot boat ramp on Sunday around 2:26 p.m.

Upon arriving at the scene, officers located a capsized personal watercraft. The initial investigation revealed that Nathaniel Willman, 20, went under the water and never resurfaced after his PWC capsized as another passenger attempted to board.
