Recovery Operation Update 2:00 PM

Weather and water conditions do not allow for recovery efforts on Lake Erie today.

The City of Cleveland has been in contact with the family in regards to all search and recovery efforts.

Weather and water conditions are expected to accommodate search and recovery efforts beginning at first light tomorrow morning.
