Philip Patnaude: Divers recover missing man's body at Belmont Harbor

Written By Chicago News Report on Sunday, March 4, 2012 | 3/04/2012 03:27:00 PM

After finding what authorities believe to be Philip Patnaude’s property, officials diligently searched Belmont Harbor for the 28-year-old man who went missing in Lakeview Saturday.

Sunday, at 3 p.m., authorities announced that a coat was found floating in Belmont Harbor.

The coat pulled from the water was described as a black ski jacket with green trim... the description matches the coat Patnaude was allegedly wearing when he went missing, said authorities.

In additional to police and rescue workers, Patnaude's family members, as well as the media, were on scene at the Lakeview neighborhood harbor.

At 3:17 p.m., a diver entered the water, presumably, searching for Patnaude’s body. A second diver went into the harbor at 3:26 p.m.

If more details become available, this article will be updated accordingly.

UPDATE: "The initial search turned up negative", said an officer at the scene, around 3:42 p.m.

UPDATE: The first round of divers were out of the water by 3:54 p.m. A second round of divers will resume the search, shortly.

UPDATE: At 4:23 p.m., investigators discovered what looks like a scuff mark on the ground of an unspecified area within the harbor. Authorities said it looks like someone “tripped” and lost their footing. Divers are checking beneath the docks.

UPDATE: At 5:17 p.m. there were signs the Chicago Police Marine Unit was either suspending the search for the evening, or scaling back their efforts... an unspecified number of crew members were told they could leave the scene.

UPDATE: At 5:33 p.m. authorities asked Belmont Harbor officials for the combination for the restrooms on the south end of harbor. Authorities were told that the restrooms are closed for the winter and unable to be used. This information was passed on to the detectives at the scene.

UPDATE: A helicopter joined the search at 5:47 p.m. The pilot was asked to fly over the area where Patnaude's jacket was found floating in the water.

UPDATE: As of 7:18 p.m., authorities were still at Belmont Harbor. This information was confirmed after police dispatch contacted the responding to officers to make sure they were still at the scene.

UPDATE: 7:52 p.m.... Coast Guard performing a “grid search”… investigators still focused on area where jacket was found… divers will return at sunup, but search efforts may continue throughout the night.

UPDATE: Monday, March 5, 2012, at approximately 10:26 a.m., "something", possible Patnaude's body, was pulled from Belmont Harbor. Additional police cars were called to the scene to assist the divers with the recovery and crowd control.

UPDATE: Reports indicate the body recovered from the harbor matches Patnaude's physical description.
