COLUMBIA, Mo. -- A man who drowned in a private pond is the adult son of Columbia Fire Department battalion chief John Igleheart, authorities said.

Daniel Igleheart, 24, was found Monday in a pond south of Columbia. There was some indication he had been drinking before he drowned, sheriff's Sgt. Tom Reddin said.

John Igleheart discovered his son's shirt and shoes along the bank of a pond at the family home Monday afternoon. The pond was dragged before divers found the body in about 16 feet of water, authorities said.
