FORT GIBSON — The body of a missing Fort Gibson man was found by authorities in a lake of water inside a cave Tuesday night, south of the Fort Gibson Dam.
Cherokee County Undersheriff Jason Chennault said it appears Joie Roland, 31, may have drowned in about 10 feet of water inside the cave. Roland was reported missing by his family Monday evening. He'd left his home Sunday to go hiking and explore caves, but had not returned home by Monday afternoon.
