LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. - A 15-foot-long, two-person submarine will be used to search Lake George for the remains of a New York City man who disappeared while swimming 20 years ago.
NEWS10 ABC is told that a group of volunteers are using the yellow submarine to search Lake George beginning Thursday as part of an effort organized by American Response for the Missing, a group that aids in the search for missing persons. Their search will continue until Sunday.
The sub will be used to search for the remains of Edison Arias, a 23-year-old Queens resident believed to have drowned in June 1993 while swimming in about 80 feet of water off the lake's western shore in Bolton.
His body was never found.
The search will also include divers assisted by the Warren County Sheriff's Office and Lake George Park Commission.
NEWS10 ABC is at the scene of the search. Check back to NEWS10.com for updates.
