Search Called Off, Nothing Found, at Carnegie Lake

Princeton Township police said late Tuesday that two people saw a white male with long, dark hair and black clothes, in Carnegie Lake.

A search of Carnegie Lake near the Harrison Street bridge was called off shortly before 3 p.m. on Wednesday (Oct. 3) after crews were unable to find a man whom witnesses reported seeing in the lake on Tuesday evening, Princeton Township Police Sgt. Michael Cifelli said.

Police closed off a portion of lower Harrison Street on Tuesday evening and rescue crews and a dive team spent three hours conducting a grid search in the water after a passing motorist initially reported seeing a man in the lake shortly before 5 p.m.

Dive teams called off a search of the area around 8:30 p.m. after debris in the water during the nighttime search caused a safety concern for the divers.

The water is about seven to 10 feet deep in that area with a muddy silt floor, Cifelli said. The current was weak at the time of the report.

The search resumed Wednesday, with nothing found.

Anyone with information about the incident or who may have seen anything should contact Princeton Township Police at 609-921-2100.
