CHICAGO — Chicago police recovered two bodies from DuSable Harbor Tuesday morning after a car was found in the water.
Police began an investigation after a report of a vehicle in the water came in just after 3 a.m. The vehicle is likely linked to the case of two missing men who were last seen early Sunday morning in River North. According to police, authorities tracked the cell phone of one of the men to the DuSable Harbor area.
Joseph “Joey” Ramos, 22, and Antonio “Tony” Lemon, 21, were last seen leaving LITE nightclub in the 200 block of West Ontario. The men were driving a blue 4-door Dodge Avenger with Illinois plate AQ54397.
WGN reporter Nancy Loo reports the vehicle pulled from DuSable Harbor is a Dodge. It is still unknown if it is the blue Dodge Avenger the men were driving at the time of their disappearance.
Officials said they have found POD camera footage from Sunday, that shows a vehicle driving into Lake Michigan. It is unknown how many people were in the vehicle at the time, or if they were able to get out.
The family of the missing men spoke to the media Tuesday morning, saying they just want to know where they are.
“I don’t want it to be them, but we want to know where they are. We’re worried sick, there’s a knot in our throat that feels like it’s choking us,” said a very emotional family member.
