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.
