MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – The body of a Logansport man was discovered in Lake Maxinkuckee after he was reported missing Friday night by family. Indiana Conservation Officers with the help of the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department and Culver Fire, Police and EMS, recovered the body of 28-year-old Jose Cruz Lizcano-Fernandez about 15 feet outside the swim area at Culver Public Beach.

Officers said he was missing for about four to five hours before family members noticed he was gone. When friends searched for Jose they found his shoes at the water’s edge then notified police just before 9 p.m.

Indiana Conservation Officers and other emergency personnel responded with divers and sonar. In about 30 minutes Jose was found. Indiana Conservation Officers will be conducting an investigation into the cause of the incident and an autopsy will be performed by the Marshall County Coroner.

Indiana Conservation Officers stress the importance of swimming with a buddy and wearing a life jacket. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
