U.S. and Canadian Coast Guard crews continue to search for three people in the water in Lake Erie, Thursday, after one body was recovered and a boat was found five miles northeast of Locust Point, Ohio.

The Coast Guard is not releasing the names of the missing people or the recovered individual at the request of the families.

Coast Guard crews investigated a report of a second body in the water but found it was a floating log.

The search commenced at 2 a.m. after a watchstander at Sector Detroit received a report that a fishing group was overdue on returning home.

The boat was discovered on Toussaint Reef, approximately five miles northeast of Locust Point. The group's truck and boat trailer were found at the Locust Point boat ramp.

Coast Guard crews from Stations Marblehead and Toledo and Air Station Detroit are receiving assistance from an air asset from Regional Command Center Trenton, Ontario, a dive team from the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department, water search teams from Customs and Border Protection and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and local agencies conducting shoreline searches. A towing company has been cleared to tow the boat.
