After a few hours of searching the deep, murky water, the search was suspended for the night.

Officials resumed the search Wednesday morning.

Princess Beach will be closed Wednesday as the search resumes.

State Police spokesman Dave Procopio said Tuesday night that the report was unconfirmed and was launched after a person who lives in a home on the lake told police they spotted a person swimming and then failed to see them again.
