Dr. Jack Logan’s body was recovered late Wednesday and was positively identified by his son, Allen. The search for Bert Alexander’s body began again at 6:00 a.m. Thursday morning.Dr. Logan and Bert Alexander went with a group from Fellowship Bible Church in Conway to Nicaragua last week. They were teaching pastors and students there how to lead churches. Logan and Alexander stayed an extra day to fish with the local pastor's family. Their boat capsized on a huge lake and they clung to the boat for several hours. The pastor and his wife slipped off and drowned. (See story link for more on the two men.)Logan and Alexander joined the pastor's 22-year-old son and 14-year-old nephew to try to use a cooler to swim to shore. The two young men made it and told
rescuers that when Logan and Alexander realized the cooler couldn't keep them all afloat, they spoke final words of encouragement and pushed off. That was the last time they were seen.The young men say they are grateful Logan and Alexander sacrificed their lives to save them.
