Please be advised that yesterday at approximately 3:45 pm the WPPD received a report of a juvenile missing in the Great Notch Reservoir. The WPFD, PCSD and State Police, along with Paterson, Clifton, Wayne, Totowa and Hawthorne Fire Departments responded. A search was conducted until nightfall last night and began again this morning at 8:30 am.
This morning, first responders led by the WPFD, the WPPD and the PCSD, along with other agencies, reconvened the search and at approximately 10:00 am, PCSD divers located the body of the 15-year old Paterson resident.
The investigation in what led to this will continue in the coming days.
Out of respect and privacy of the family we will not be releasing the name of the individual. I ask that you pray for them and that God grant them the strength to know that he is in a better place.
I want to thank all our first responders who worked diligently yesterday and today.
