Search Called Off for Chicago Man

10/19/11 – A water search has been temporarily suspended for a suburban Chicago man who apparently drowned after his canoe capsized in Lake Michigan off Door County’s Washington Island. The victim was identified yesterday as 45-year-old Mayur Patel of Highland Park Illinois. He and another man were in the canoe when it capsized Sunday afternoon in winds of over 30-miles-an-hour. The other man swam to shore, but Patel stayed with the canoe before going under. Rescue divers and a search plane combed the area yesterday, but saw no sign of the victim. Sheriff’s deputies say the water patrols will be cut out for the next couple of days, because strong winds are expected to return – but officers will keep searching the shoreline.
