Indiana teen dies after jumping into Lake Michigan

Officials say 18 year old Jose Alcazar of Hammond is dead, after jumping into Lake Michigan Monday night with two friends. Sergeant Shawn Brown says witnesses told police that Alcazar began to struggle in the water, disappeared underneath it, and never resurfaced.

Brown says the Coast Guard, Lake County Sheriff's Marine Unit and Indiana Conservation Officers were out on the lake looking for the missing teen. He says a diver found Alcazar's body late last night nearly 50 feet away from the pier.

Police say an autopsy is planned to determine the cause of death.
