JACKSON COUNTY, Oklahoma -

The body of an Altus man was recovered on Sunday after a witness reported seeing the man drowning in the Red River in the early morning hours on Thursday. 

Search crews worked tirelessly on Thursday, Friday and Saturday before an air unit spotted the body of 28-year-old Logan Graham.

A witness told police he saw Graham enter the water at the Headrick Bridge, located on State Highway 62B, at approximately 12:30 a.m. and never resurface. According to the report, Graham was not wearing a flotation device.

Finally, around 9:15 a.m. on Sunday, an OHP aircraft located Graham's body just over five miles south of Headrick Bridge. The body was pulled from the water around 11 a.m. and sent to the medical examiner's office.

No further information was released in the report. The case remains under investigation.
