A teenager who went missing in Lake Michigan was recovered by searchers late Thursday night, but she was unable to be revived.
Albrianna Huck, 14, of Ludington, was pronounced dead at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital at 11:20 p.m. Thursday, according to a press release from Ludington Police Chief Mark Barnett on Friday morning.
Barnett stated that officers of the Ludington Police Department were dispatched to Stearns Park Beach at 7:55 p.m. for a report of a missing person. The report was made by one of Huck's family members, who went with Huck and Huck's brother to the beach.
A search was conducted of the entire beach and park, as well as other areas of interest provided by Huck's family members, Barnett stated.
At 9:50 p.m., searchers were advised that the U.S. Coast Guard helicopter crew located someone on the shoreline waving at it. Land and marine personnel were directed to a location on the Lake Michigan shoreline in the area of 711 N. Lakeshore Drive.
Upon their arrival, Barnett stated they met individuals that located the victim in the water and had started CPR. Searchers and first responders continued CPR on the victim while she was being transported to the Loomis Street Boat Launch via a coast guard boat and then to the hospital via Life EMS. First responders continued to assist emergency department personnel in providing CPR in an effort to revive Huck.
The family of the victim was directed to the hospital, and they were assisted by the Mason County Victim's Assistance Unit, Barnett stated.
