LARWILL — A South Whitley man who was missing for nine months was found Saturday evening, submerged with his vehicle in Larwill Lake.

Family and friends of Marcus Wolfe have been searching for the young adult for months. A group from Ohio agreed to come to Whitley County this weekend to conduct sonar searches of approximately 20 lakes and ponds in the county.

In a Facebook post early Sunday morning, Wolfe’s mother, Tammy Wolfe, thanked everyone who has helped look for her son.

“With heavy heart I need to let you know Marcus Wolfe has been found. He was found in Larwill Lake. I need to thank everyone that has helped,” she posted.

Investigators look on as crews review sonar footage taken from a lake near Hoffman Road in Columbia City.
