Officer Anthony Freitas drowned when his patrol car crashed into the Presque Isle Marina channel in Presque Isle State Park.

A search was initiated after he failed to answer radio calls and report back to the department at the end of his shift. Other officers located tire tracks near the water and the U.S. Coast Guard began to search for the vehicle near the spot.

They located the vehicle 45 minutes later and it was pulled from the water shortly thereafter.

Officer Freitas has served with the Pennsylvania Bureau of State Parks for 16 years. He is survived by his wife, three daughters, and son.
