Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty confirmed that the search was being called off for the safety reasons.
“I just spoke with family & calling off recovery mission for the night due to safety reasons,” tweeted Dougherty.
Earlier on Sunday, Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty said at the scene that two men in their forties were reported missing Sunday morning.
The GeneseeSun.com is witholding the names of the men pending a formal release from emergency personnel.
Teams searched the lake with the help of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (AUV).
“We took a report of two missing males,” said Dougherty at the scene. “Part of the search includes a search of the lake. We did discover two helmets with the use of our UAV.”
The preliminary investigation is that the men left the lake’s west shore on a snowmobile and headed across the ice towards the north end at about 3 a.m. Saturday. The search began at about 3 a.m. Sunday, when the Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of missing persons.
Members of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office dive team are at the scene alongside the Lakeville Fire Department, South Corning Fire Department, Springwater Fire Department, Livingston County Office of Emergency Management, and Livingston County EMS.
