HENDERSON HARBOR, N.Y. — Coast Guard and local agency crews are searching for two missing teenagers in Lake Ontario near Henderson Harbor, New York, Sunday.

The names of the teenagers are not being released and there is no Coast Guard imagery at this time.

At about 3:30 p.m., the Coast Guard received a report that two teenagers, ages 14 and 19, had been cliff diving, jumped into the water, and didn’t resurface.

A watchstander at Coast Guard Sector Buffalo command center issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast and launched rescue crews from Coast Guard Stations Oswego and Sackets Harbor, aboard 45-foot and 25-foot response boats, as well as a helicopter from the Canadian Coast Guard.

The crew from Station Sackets Harbor arrived at the last known position within 40 minutes to commence searching. The Canadian Coast Guard helicopter along with Station Oswego arrived shortly thereafter to conduct additional searches.

Boat crews from Coast Guard Stations Oswego and Sackets Harbor continue to search on the water, while a helicopter crew from the Canadian Coast Guard searches from the air.

An incident command post led by the New York State Police is currently set up on Robert Wehle State Park to help with the search operations.

Interested media should contact the Coast Guard Sector Buffalo Public Affairs Officer, Ensign Kyle Maxey, at 716-843-9527.
