Indiana Conservation officers are continuing in their search for 29-year-old Ron Wood, Jr.

Wood, a Knox High School graduate, went missing after jumping into Lake Michigan Saturday night to attempt to rescue struggling swimmers who drifted from their boat a mile off shore. All swimmers were rescued by the US Coast Guard and nearby boaters except for Wood who remains missing.

The Coast Guard did a surface search along with Indiana Conservation officers. Conservation officers searched the water for nearly ten hours using a below surface operation, but have not found Wood.

Sgt. Shawn D. Brown from DNR Law Enforcement told WKVI that conservation officers will continue a surface search for Wood as weather and lake conditions permit.
