NEW MILFORD - The search for a missing boy who was last seen swimming in Candlewood Lake resumed Tuesday morning.

“Divers will be continuing their search for the missing swimmer at Dykes Point area today,” Mayor Pete Bass said Tuesday morning.

“Please avoid the area if possible to allow the divers and first responders to continue their work,” Bass said.

On Monday, crews searched for hours for the youth who possibly drowned in Candlewood Lake.

The search was below the water off Dike Point Park, where he had celebrated Memorial Day with friends, New Milford Police Sgt. Jim Dzamko said.
