Woman, teenager found dead in Lake Erie; 2 missing


TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The Coast Guard says it has suspended its search for the remaining two boaters missing after a fishing trip on Lake Erie.

The bodies of two of four missing people were recovered Thursday, a day after the group left for an afternoon of fishing and sent pictures to relatives.

Searchers found a partially submerged boat on a reef near the Davis-Besse nuclear power plant and later spotted the bodies of a teenage girl and a woman. Both of the victims were wearing life jackets.

The Coast Guard said Thursday night it has suspended the search pending any new developments.
