Man Missing After Falling Through Ice on Lake Erie

One person is missing after falling through the ice on western Lake Erie.

Monroe County Police say it happened Wednesday night on the American side, southwest of Amherstburg.

Police say an open area of water was found about 1,000 ft. from shore where a snowmobile went through the ice.

The sheriff's office says it temporarily suspended its search due in part to unstable ice.

The Coast Guard has issued a warning about potentially unstable ice on the Great Lakes as temperatures warmed following a recent stretch of bitter cold.
