Twin Lakes police Chief Dale Racer has issued the following statement regarding ongoing efforts to recover the body of a man who went missing after entering Lake Elizabeth in Twin Lakes Thursday evening:

Fire Department dive and sonar teams battled the winds and waves on Lake Elizabeth today and were unable to recover the body. The Incident Commander from Twin Lakes Fire Department, Fire Chief Stan Clause, made the decision to close down the lake today in order to prevent interference during the recovery operation.

Fire department personnel also did a search along the shore line with negative results.

The recovery operation will be suspended shortly (statement issued at 6:24 p.m.) and resume at 6 a.m. tomorrow. A sonar team will stay on the lake to mark specific finds for the divers to check tomorrow.

Tomorrow morning Fire Chief Clause will determine whether to open the lake or open part of the lake to the public or continue keeping the lake closed until recovery.
