LIVONIA – The search for two men who have been reported missing since Sunday has been postponed until Tuesday morning.
Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty tweeted that divers did enter the water with an area of interest but did not recover anything.
“The divers are up with nothing recovered. The recovery mission will resume tomorrow,” tweeted Dougherty.
Dougherty said at a Sunday press briefing that the men are believed to have left the northwestern shore of Conesus Lake on a snowmobile and headed across the ice southeast, towards the opposite shore. The snowmobile is believed to have fallen through the ice.
The GeneseeSun.com is witholding the names of the men pending a formal release from emergency personnel.
Teams searched the lake on Sunday 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.
