ARDMORE, OK -- The Fort Worth Police Department is mourning the loss of one of their own.

49-year-old Harlan Whitworth died while scuba diving in Lake Murray in Ardmore, Oklahoma. The state park is located just over 100-miles north of Fort Worth.

Reports say the 17-year vet was with friends when he went underwater and never resurfaced. His body was recovered Friday afternoon.

The Fort Worth Police Officers Association posted the sad news on Facebook.

The post asks to “keep the family in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.”
