WIND LAKE, Wis. -- Divers resumed their search Monday for a missing swimmer in a Racine County lake.

Wind Lake Fire Chief Rob Robins says visibility and windy conditions have complicated the search for the man's body. The 57-year-old victim was boating with family and friends Saturday afternoon when he went for a swim and did not resurface.

Robins tells The Journal Times rescue and recovery personnel have used sonar and an underwater camera in their search for the victim. The man went missing in the deepest part of Wind Lake where depths range from 25 feet to 40 feet.
