A St. Louis man apparently drowned after falling off a jet ski in the Lake of the Ozarks Saturday, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Thomas K. Moore, 59, had been riding on a Sea-Doo behind a family member's boat when someone on the boat noticed the jet ski had no rider. Moore was discovered face-down in the water about 5:55 p.m. and was pronounced dead at the lake, according to troopers. 

Troopers said he had been wearing a safety device. The accident happened in Camden County at the 2.5 mile marker of the Niangua Arm of the Lake of the Ozarks.
