Recovery teams in Wisconsin resumed their search Tuesday on Lake Beulah for the last of four Illinois men who drowned in a canoe accident.

All four men, ages 20-23, attended New Trier High School in north suburban Winnetka. Some had just recently graduated. Their deaths have devastated the community.

Over the weekend, the group traveled to East Troy, Wisconsin, to visit stay at a lake house. Early Sunday morning, their friends noticed the four men were gone and later spotted an overturned canoe on the water.

Dive teams searched the lake and recovered the bodies of Lanny Patrick Sack and Christopher J. McQuillen. On Monday, the body of a third victim was pulled from the lake. He was identified Tuesday as Mori Weinstein, 21, Walworth County authorities said.

Authorities said they won't stop looking until the last missing man is found.

"Any resources we need I'm pulling in, so we can bring this to a conclusion as soon as possible," Walworth County Sheriff Kurt Picknell said.

Authorities didn't find any life jackets in the water. They also said it appears alcohol was a factor in their deaths.
