Discovery made in Larwill Lake
At the request of the family of Marcus Wolfe, a young Whitley County man who has been missing since July 25, 2016, a search team utilized advanced sonar technology to search waterways in the county over the weekend. On Sunday morning, a discovery was made in Larwill Lake, just south of Larwill in western Whitley County.
Texas EquuSearch, a private, non-profit search and recovery company headquartered in Galveston, Texas, found a submerged vehicle and a deceased white male. They were aided in their efforts by the Whitley County Sheriff's Department, the Indiana State Police and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
Positive identification of the body is now underway according to the Whitley County Prosecutor's Office. Few details have been released at this time.
For many months, teams of volunteers have been combing Whitley County in search of Wolfe who was last seen leaving his mother's home in July.
