FRANKTON, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say the bodies of two ice fishermen have been recovered from an Indiana pond.
The Madison County sheriff's department says the bodies were found around midnight Tuesday at Camp Kikthawenund in Frankton, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis.
WTHR-TV reports the men were an off-duty Department of Natural Resources officer in his 40s and a friend in his 70s. Names weren't immediately released.
Sheriff's Lt. Darwin Dwiggins tells The (Anderson) Herald Bulletin that when the men didn't return as expected from fishing Tuesday a relative of one of them reported about 9 p.m. that they were missing. A hole was found in the ice and the bodies were recovered by divers following a search.
