Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency (TWRA) officers responded to a call of a missing angler on Center Hill Lake yesterday (April 29, 2020. Officers say 36-year-old Quinn Hogan of Putnam County was reported missing by a friend. Hogan was fishing on Center Hill Lake the previous afternoon and friends looking for Hogan, found his truck at the Cookeville boat dock yesterday. Three TWRA boats and two Dekalb County rescue boats searched and found the bass fishing boat of the missing angler adrift in a cove near to the Cookeville Boat Dock.

TWRA officers used GPS forensic tracking to determine the area the boat went adrift. The TWRA Remote Operated Vehicle was deployed and quickly located Hogan’s body in eight feet of water, despite heavy rains in the area. Hogan’s body was recovered near the area the boat was found.

Hogan was wearing a self-inflating personal floatation device. The device was not inflated. The body was recovered and taken to the Davidson County Medical Examiner’s office. The incident remains under investigation.
