The Northwestern University Police Department was notified today (Nov. 16) that the body of a man was found early today in Lake Michigan near Montrose Harbor in Chicago. The body may be that of a missing Northwestern University student, Trevor J. Boehm, but no positive identification has been made at this time. Northwestern has been informed that the Cook County Medical Examiner's office is expected to begin the process of making a formal identification on Monday afternoon.

Northwestern University Police are assisting the Chicago Police Department in the investigation.

Boehm, 20, a first-year student in the School of Communication from Monument, Col., had been reported missing last Sunday (Nov. 9). On Thursday (Nov.13), his jacket, which contained his Northwestern identification card, keys, and cell phone, was found among the rocks on the shore of Lake Michigan on Northwestern's Evanston campus. A search of the lake was conducted Thursday and Friday by police and Coast Guard officers, but found nothing.

University officials continue to be in contact with Trevor's family and our thoughts are with them at this time.
