By The Associated Press
GARY — Crews are searching Lake Michigan for a missing boater off a beach in northwestern Indiana.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says conservation officers responded Sunday evening to the waters off Marquette Park Beach in Gary following a 911 call about an unmanned vessel circling in the water. Authorities recovered the boat and were searching for its operator.
Gary police say the search was ongoing Monday for 45-year-old Pawel Knych, whose cellphone and life jacket were recovered with the boat.
The DNR says Monday morning that a sonar search was taking place.
The U.S. Coast Guard says the boater was seen going into the water from the moving boat. Watercraft and helicopters were used during the search.
