ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (AP) -- Rescuers are searching for a pair of missing boaters on Lake St. Clair near Detroit.

U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Zachary Ford says a 57-year-old male and a 15-year-old male were swimming in the lake off St. Clair Shores when their pontoon boat drifted away Tuesday afternoon.

Ford says a woman aboard the boat was fine and a third male swimmer were rescued but the other two people have not been located.

Ford says the man is wearing black shorts and the teenager is wearing gray shorts. He says neither was wearing a life jacket.

Ford says two Coast Guard boats and a helicopter are searching the scene, as are personnel from the Macomb and Wayne county sheriff's departments.

They brought the young man down our canal on the coast guard boat did not look promising- God I hope I am wrong and I hope the older man looking like it is going to storm soon that won't help the coast guard search!

Saw on channel 7 or 4 that they were poking their pole in the water, they must have had a sonar target. It's in God's hands now, a simple life jacket.... and we wouldn't be having this thread

(WXYZ) - Coast Guard rescue crews pulled a teenage boy out of Lake St. Clair and began performing CPR on the boy.

He was rushed to shore and taken to a nearby hospital. The teen had been in the water for three hours.

Coast Guard crews are still searching for a 57-year-old man who also disappeared in the water.

Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel says 4 people went out on the lake in a Pontoon boat to have a day of fun. A 31-year-old man jumped off the boat into the water and got in some type of trouble while swimming. A 57-year-old man and a 13-year old boy jumped in to help him. They went under. The 31-year-old man was rescued and will be ok.

Another person on board the Pontoon called 911 for help when the two people did not surface.

Macomb County divers will continue to search the water for the 57-year-old man. He has been in the water for several hours.
