GARY, Ind. — The body of a woman missing in  Lake Michigan was recovered Tuesday afternoon.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement confirmed the body of 24-year-old Tiara Hardy was found.

Hardy and two of her friends were carried out by a current at Marquette Park Beach in Gary, Ind., Monday evening. Her two friends were able to swim out, but Hardy disappeared.

Police had to call off the search around 9 p.m. Monday because of the rough conditions in the water.  The search resumed Tuesday morning.

Hardy’s father went into the water himself in an attempt to find his daughter.
