Humble jumped off a boat to go swimming, according to troopers. Witnesses said Humble resurfaced, threw his hat onto the sundeck of the boat then went under again and didn't come back up.

James said that area is between 35 and 60 feet deep, with bluffs below the surface that make the search challenging.
