Crews recover body from south Indianapolis pond


Firefighters recovered the body of 21-year-old Reyes Xavier Perez from a retention pond on the south side of Indianapolis Friday night.

Divers searched for about 45 minutes before locating Perez in about ten feet of water in a pond near Little Buck Creek near Southport and Bluff roads Friday evening.

Crews at the scene told Eyewitness News they were searching the water after a jacket was found nearby that may have belonged Perez, who was last seen a week ago.

The coroner's office will do an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
