Floating mannequin foot spurs lake search

ANTIOCH, Ill. (AP) - August 11, 2011

A local newspaper reports that divers and sonar teams spent nearly 10 hours searching Lake Marie, near Antioch, before they located the fake foot Wednesday evening.

Authorities say the boy reeled the foot to within three feet of his boat before it fell back into the murky water.

Gurnee Fire Department Battalion Chief John Skillman says the search was launched because the boy was considered a reliable source.
