The search continues for the body of a Kansas man who drowned in Lake Skiatook July 4. Dive teams have again been called to an area in Osage Park near the Highway 20 bridge, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Chance Humble of Coffeyville jumped off a boat to swim, resurfaced once to throw his hat on the sundeck of a boat then went back under and didn't resurface.

The 36-year-old man's family and friends are at the lake, waiting for word from searchers. OHP and the Army Corps of Engineers have been searching for Humble since Monday evening.
