Search for teen in Lake Michigan near Diversey Harbor resumes: ‘It’s a recovery mission now’

The Chicago police marine unit again was searching Tuesday for the body of a teenage boy who was believed to have been pulled under by strong Lake Michigan currents Monday afternoon near Diversey Harbor, officials said.

The teen, believed to be between 14 and 16 years old, was reported in the water just before 4 p.m., according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford. The boy was thought to have gone swimming with a few friends near the harbor.

“The lake is very high speed right now,” Langford said Monday. “And he went under and wasn’t seen again.”

Just before 6 p.m., the search was suspended, fire officials said, and the Chicago police marine unit was taking the lead looking for the boy’s body. Tuesday morning, a fire spokesman said the agency had no plans to resume searching, saying, “It’s a recovery mission now.”

A police spokeswoman, Sally Bown, said the marine unit was back on the lake about 8:40 a.m. after weighing whether conditions would allow for a safe search. She did not know how many officers were on the lake or whether there were divers going in the water.

On Monday, Fire Department divers searched in the water near 2600 North Cannon Drive. Divers couldn’t swim north because of the thrust of the lake, Langford said, and had to use ropes to keep from being pulled south.

A lakefront flood advisory and a small craft advisory are in effect until 4 a.m. Wednesday along Lake Michigan from southern Wisconsin over to the Michigan shoreline, according to forecasters, with waves up to 10 feet and winds up to 25 knots possible. A special marine warning expired earlier Monday.

“No one should be swimming,” the department said in a tweet.
