The Stutsman County Sheriff's office has identified a man killed near Medina when he fell through the ice on Dec. 2 or 3.

Craig Wells, 60, Medina, fell through the ice along a flooded portion of old Highway 10 about four miles east of Medina. The sheriff's office was not notified until about 3:25 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7. Officers from the Stutsman County Sheriff's Office and Jamestown Fire Department searched until dark on Saturday before resuming the search Sunday morning, Dec. 8, and recovered the body about 10:40 a.m., said Chad Kaiser, Stutsman County sheriff.

The Stutsman County remote operated vehicle, or ROV, was used in the search and recovery. The submersible device uses cameras and sonar to search underwater without divers having to enter the water.
