The search continues for a 23-year-old man last seen around 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 18.

It’s believed Jacob Sandy was heading to kayak at Lake Michigan.

His car, a blue 2000 PT Crusier was discovered near Porter Beach, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at ABC 57.

Porter Assistance Police Chief Todd Allen tells The (Northwest Indiana) Times that Sandy told relatives Saturday he was going kayaking, but he never returned.

Allen says a surveillance camera outside Porter Beach’s bathrooms showed Sandy walking in front of a Porter police cruiser Saturday afternoon, and that car’s dashboard camera showed him taking his kayak into the water.

His vehicle has Michigan license plate DJA0919.

Porter Police have taken over the investigation with help from the Lake County Sheriff’s department and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Anybody with information is asked to call police at 235-9201 or call 911.
