Durant man drowns in southern Oklahoma

The Oklahoma Lake Patrol says a Durant man has drowned while swimming near the Blue River Dam north of Durant.

Troopers say 35-year-old Royce Dan Jones was with a group swimming in the area when he either fell or jumped from the dam into the river shortly after 7 p.m. Wednesday. He went under water and never resurfaced. His body was found about five hours later in a logjam near the dam.
