VEEDERSBURG, Ind. (AP) — Western Indiana authorities are investigating the death of a Fountain County man whose body was found floating in a creek hours after he left for a fishing trip.

Conservation officers say the body 59-year-old Keith Summers of Covington was found Wednesday evening by his brother in Coal Creek near the town of Veedersburg about 65 miles northwest of Indianapolis.
