Body of missing NY police diver found”

On the fifth day of search efforts missing Buffalo police diver Craig Lehner, recovery teams were finally able to locate and retrieve his body from the rapid currents of the Niagara River.

A search and rescue operation to find 34-year-old officer Craig Lehner started on Friday afternoon and concluded on Tuesday before 1:30 p.m., when authorities on the USA side of the border announced the tragic ending.

In an update Tuesday morning, Buffalo police said the search effort moved to the area below the global train bridge between Fort Erie and Buffalo. Pence also made calls to Buffalo's deputy police commissioner and mayor.

Authorities say Lehner was participating in a routine training exercise on the river at Buffalo near Unity Island when he failed to resurface.

Fort Erie Fire Department chief Ed Melanson said his crews were ready to assist for as long as they were needed.

It is unclear if Pence called the officer's mother before or after Lehner's body was discovered.

Media has been moved to Columbus Park at Porter and Niagara. It posted an image of the Buffalo, N.Y., Police crest masked with a band of black tape bearing Lehner's name.

Lehner, a nine-year veteran of the force, was a member of Buffalo's K-9 unit and underwater recovery team.
