Weather conditions prompted crews to suspend their searching Monday morning for a woman who went missing at Chicago's Montrose beach over the warm weekend.
Police said the woman in her 40s was last seen around 9:30 p.m. Sunday going into the water at the popular beach but never returned.
Crews began searching the waters Sunday night and continued until 11 p.m. The search resumed Monday morning but was suspended soon after. It was not immediately clear when the search would resume.
The National Weather Service issued a Beach Hazard Warning for the lake from 7 a.m. Monday through Tuesday evening, warning of waves of up to 8 feet and strong rip currents.
