Search underway for missing Indianapolis man (Monroe County)

A search for an Indianapolis man is underway after he went missing in the water at Monroe Lake yesterday.

At approximately 2 p.m., David Alejendor Mora-Segura, 34, was boating with friends when he disappeared beneath the surface of the water.

Responding agencies searched for Mora-Segura until nightfall when the operation was suspended. The search resumed this morning.

Initial investigation revealed that Mora-Segura was wearing a personal flotation device (PFD) when he entered the water, but appears to have slipped out of it.

Agencies involved with search include Indiana Conservation Officers, Monroe County Sheriff’s Department, Monroe County Dive Team, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, and Perry-Clear Creek Township Fire Department.”

Editor’s note: The DNR made an error in the press release, which is entirely in quotes, but the Perry-Clear Creek fire department is actually part of Monroe Fire Protection District. The county fire departments were realigned, and some of the fire trucks had the old name on them for while, but Perry-Clear Creek technically no longer exists. That may be how the DNR made the error.
