A report of a child on a log in Lake Michigan in Port Washington Tuesday, Aug. 30 sent first responders to South Beach Park. As of 8 p.m., the search was called off after no child was located and there were no reports of a child missing in the area. Police said a 911 call came in shortly before 3 p.m. from someone on South Beach who said a child was floating on a log approximately a mile out from the beach. The log was found floating a few hundred yards from shore, but no child was found. Police said around 4:30 p.m. they had taken no reports of anyone missing, but crews were continuing to search. The calm of a picture-perfect day along Lake Michigan was disrupted Tuesday afternoon by the law enforcement response. "I was just out there, and I saw a lot of divers going in and out," said Shane Stimac.
