Search Suspended For Man Missing In Lake Pontchartrain


Wednesday afternoon’s bad weather forced the NOPD to suspend its search for a man missing since Tuesday in Lake Pontchartrain.

Friends identify the man as 21-year-old Ksanwy Chavez.  They say he jumped into the lake to help rescue someone else who was drowning.

Instead, it was Chavez who went under and never resurfaced.

Two other swimmers made it to shore safely.

During the search on Tuesday, NOPD officers also underscored the point that it is illegal to swim in the lake along the New Orleans lakefront.
