Crews recover body of man who went missing in Brookville Reservoir

BROOKVILLE, IN (FOX19) - Crews have recovered the body of a man who went missing over the weekend in the Brookville, Ind. Reservoir.

Raymond Roger Pitts, 50, of Covington, went missing around 1 a.m. Saturday morning. Police say Pitts was in a boat with two other people when he decided to go for a swim. He never came back up from the water. Officers received the report from two fellow boaters.

At around 8:50 a.m. Monday morning, crews recovered Pitts' body.

Indiana Conservation Officers are continuing their investigation into Mr. Pitts' death and an autopsy has been  scheduled for Tuesday at the Hamilton County Ohio Coroner's Office.

Officers say recovery efforts were hampered by conflicting witness accounts and an imprecise search location.
