Man presumed drowned off Kenosha shore

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard says it's suspended its search for a man presumed drowned in Lake Michigan off the Kenosha shore.

Fire officials say the man jumped in the water Monday evening with two other people near the North Pier, but then disappeared. Battalion Chief Ken Schroeder tells the Kenosha News (http://bit.ly/128B3j3 ) the water was choppy. Winds of 20 to 25 mph made the search difficult.

The Kenosha County Underwater Rescue and Recovery team also searched for the man. Kenosha firefighters suspended their search at dark, while the Coast Guard continued to patrol the area into the night.
