Authorities say a 30-year-old man has drowned at Perry Lake in northeast Kansas.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office has identified the man as Jeremy Welch of Bonner Springs. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that he jumped into the lake Saturday night and didn’t resurface.
Sheriff Jeff Herrig says the drowning happened at Party Cove, which is a popular spot for boaters to gather on the lake. Four divers searched for 30 to 40 minutes before locating Welch’s body.
Herrig says the drowning is under investigation.
