MENTOR, Ohio — Rescue crews in Lake County are hard at work searching for a 15-year-old boy who went missing in the waters of Lake Erie Friday afternoon.
According to Sheriff Frank Leonbruno, the teen was swimming with friends at Headlands Beach State Park when he “went underwater without resurfacing” around 3:45 p.m. The incident occurred near the breakwall.
Besides the county marine patrol, dive, and drone teams, additional resources were brought in from local departments in Mentor and Fairport Harbor, along with the Ohio Division of Parks and Watercraft and the U.S. Coast Guard. Search efforts were stopped late last night, but resumed Saturday morning.
