Search Underway For Missing Lake Michigan Boater
September 8, 2014 — The Associated Press — Crews are searching Lake Michigan near Indiana Dunes State Park for a suburban Chicago man who fell overboard from a boat.
Indiana Conservation Officer Shawn Brown says the search resumed about 7:30 a.m. Monday for 54-year-old Amer Rustum of Willowbrook, Illinois, who fell off the boat Sunday evening. Brown says crews were using a remote-control underwater vehicle to search for the body.
Brown says Rustum was with friends when he fell in about 20 yards from shore in the area about 10 miles east of Gary. A search Sunday evening found no sign of him.
