The body of a missing Indianapolis man was recovered on a beach in Porter County

PORTER COUNTY, Ida. (CBS)- The body of a missing Indianapolis man was recovered from a beach in Porter County, Indiana, on Thursday.

The body of 22-year-old Bryce Dunfee was recovered on West Beach in the Indiana Dunes National Park, about a half-mile from where he was reported missing.

Response personnel were dispatched to West Beach in response to a person in the water on February 21. While on scene, they learned that five people stepped on an ice shelf along the shoreline as it began to crack.

As the group returned to shore, Dunfee fell over. His friends tried to rescue him, but waves and unstable ice hampered his efforts, according to authorities.

He was last seen wearing a gray shirt with black sleeves, khaki pants, and black shoes.

The Ogden Dunes Police Department, Portage Police Department, Gary Police Department, National Park Rangers and the Porter County Coroner’s Office are assisting in the investigation.
