MUSKEGON, Mich. — The search for a reportedly missing swimmer in Lake Michigan off Pere Marquette Beach on Saturday has been called off due to weather, but also because crews aren't entirely sure anyone is actually missing.

The U.S. Coast Guard and county dive teams began searching along the shoreline around 3:40 p.m. Saturday after someone on the beach reported seeing what they believed to be an individual struggling off shore.

However, several hours of searching turned up nothing.

Officials on scene said no one has been reported missing and there are no vehicles or belongings left at the beach to suggest someone is unaccounted for at this time. But they said they will check again in the morning and keep an eye out for any missing person reports.
