SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — The body of a 25-year-old Sheboygan man was recovered in the Sheboygan River on Tuesday.

Sheboygan fire officials identified him as Lee Lor. He was found 12 feet below the surface around 10:45 a.m.


Rescue crews began recovery efforts again Tuesday after an extensive search began Monday evening and was unsuccessful.

According to the Sheboygan Fire Department, crews responded to the Sheboygan River at Rotary Park around 7:10 p.m. after witnesses reported a person diving into the river and then calling out for help.

A pile of clothes and a cell phone were found on the riverbank where witnesses say the person went in.


The Coast Guard and the Sheboygan Falls and Town of Mosel fire departments assisted in the water search where the river meets Lake Michigan.

After an hour-and-a-half-long search Monday evening, the Sheboygan Fire Department said it would convert to recovery efforts Tuesday morning. Efforts were halted due to visibility and diver safety.

Rescue crews are searching for a person who called out for help in the Sheboygan River on Monday.
