KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - High waves and dangerous currents have forced rescue crews to call off the search for a teen who jumped into Lake Michigan from a Kenosha harbor pier and was swept under water.

The teen and two friends from Indian Trail High School and Academy went to the pier Thursday afternoon to take photos. Officials say despite whitecaps crashing into the pier the boy decided to jump in the water for a photo.

WDJT-TV reports that multiple agencies have been looking for the teen using sonar but called off the search late Friday afternoon.

The Kenosha News says the teen's friends went into the lake to try to help him, but couldn't reach him. The Kenosha County dive team and other agencies searched for the boy until 8:30 p.m. Thursday resumed efforts Friday.
