I am part of a search and rescue team, and we were out on a training op on Sunday on the Schuylkill river around Phoenixville with my Phantom 4. Was using the drone to search along the tree line. About 15 minutes into the flight it looks like I got too close to a tree, and the drone fell into the water. We used the last location on the GPS and visuals of the tree from the footage, but even people in the water were unable to find it.

I have DJI Care Refresh which I bought as an insurance, but it looks like there is no chance of making a claim without the crashed drone recovered.

Here is the flight log:

Any tips for searching for the drone?

Thanks, I am going to contact DJI support to see what they say. I am just not too hopeful based on what I've read.
