CHICAGO (WLS) -- A body has washed up on shore near the Belmont Harbor Friday morning, according to police.

The discovery comes after a 15-year-old boy was swept out into Lake Michigan Monday near Diversey Harbor on Tuesday.

The teen was swimming with a group of friends when he disappeared and never resurfaced, police say.

After hours of searching for the missing boy, officials switched to a recovery mission, presuming he had drowned.

Police have not said if the body found Friday morning is connected to the missing teen.
