Coast Guard Ends Search of Water for Missing NU Student

Trevor Boehm's phone, jacket found at lakefront

The U.S. Coast Guard has ended a search of an area of Lake Michigan Thursday after a campus police officer found a cell phone, keys and jacket belonging to missing Northwestern University student Trevor Boehm.

The jacket held Boehm's Northwestern identification card, his keys, his cell phone and several other personal items. It was found among the rocks on the shore of Lake Michigan on Northwestern’s Evanston campus. After the jacket was found, the Northwestern University Police Department contacted the Evanston Police Department, the Evanston Fire Department and the U.S. Coast Guard.

The university continues to work closely with the student's family, a Thursday afternoon news release stated.

Police said at this time, they do not suspect foul play. 

Authorities did not say why they ended the search, but Alan K. Cubbage, vice president of university relations, said there are no plans to resume at this time.
