An Illinois man is dead after drowning on the Lake of the Ozarks.
The Highway Patrol’s Water Division reports that 51-year-old Stephen Jones was swimming in a cove near the 17.6 Mile Marker on Sunday.
Officials say he jumped off a diving board around 6PM and never resurfaced.
His body was recovered later that evening.
This is now the 12th drowning for the Lake area this year.
