Monday's storms have hampered the search effort for a Chicago teen presumed drowned in Lake Michigan while swimming at a beach where no lifeguards were on duty. Searchers went back into the water for a third time Monday afternoon trying to recover the body of 13-year-old Raphael Palomar. He disappeared over the weekend while swimming at Porter Beach in the Indiana Dunes.

Other swimmers were able to get Raphael's10-year-old brother out of the water to safety.

A helicopter search planned for Monday morning had to be cancelled because of the bad weather.
