Chicago Police Search DuSable Harbor for Car in Water
At around 3:15 a.m., officers responded to the lakefront in the 100 block of North Lake Shore Drive, according to Chicago police. Detectives investigating a missing persons report had tracked a cell phone to that location, where camera footage at the scene showed a vehicle drive into the lake.
Police said investigators did not know how many people were in the water or if they were able to make it out safely. The vehicle had not been recovered as of 5 a.m., officials said, prompting a recovery mission by CPD’s marine unit.
Lake Shore Drive remained open near the scene, though the northbound exit ramps to Randolph Street were closed, along with the bike path, according to police.
Family members of Lemon, who they said goes by Tony, said a police officer friend told them that a city camera captured his car, a black or dark blue Dodge Avenger, driving through the area of LaSalle and Washington streets.
Further details were not immediately available.
