The boat patrol was able to get to the end of the lake and could see what appeared to be tire tracks at the bottom of a 40 foot embankment. As the boat was moving through the mill foil, oil appeared on the water surface.

Search and rescue divers were called to the area and located Mr. Campbell's vehicle in approximately 12 feet of water about 300 feet from end of the lake. Mr. Campbell's body was also located in his vehicle.
