OSAGE BEACH, Mo. - The Missouri State Water Patrol says a 56-year-old Virginia man drowned at the Lake of the Ozarks near Osage Beach.
Calvin Bloxom, of Parksley, Va., jumped off a pontoon boat about 3 p.m. Friday near the 28-mile marker main channel and did not resurface.
The patrol says that others on the boat waited about 25 minutes and then left, thinking that Bloxom had swam to shore.
The group continued boating and didn't report Bloxom missing for several hours.
The patrol recovered his body around 11:40 p.m.
