The search resumes today for a 19-year-old Milwaukee man who disappeared late Monday while swimming with friends near Sheboygan. The Coast Guard said the man was swept out by a strong under-tow in Lake Michigan. He and two other teens were swimming about 75-to-100-feet off the shore of a beach, when he started being pulled farther away. It happened near Alliant Energy’s Edgewater Power Plant in Sheboygan.
The swimmer went missing about five-in-the-afternoon. The Coast Guard and local authorities conducted an air-and-water search throughout the evening.
The Sheboygan Press said it was the 40th time that local rescue crews were called onto Lake Michigan since June first, more than double the 17 times they were called during all of last year.
