A man reported missing earlier in the day was found dead at Montrose Harbor Wednesday night, officials said.

The man, 44, was found by divers after police were called to near the 500 block of West Montrose Avenue about 8:30 p.m., said Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

The man’s identity was not being released because his family had not been notified, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office, which was notified of the man’s death about 1:10 a.m.

The Police Marine Unit found the man’s body following a search by Marine officers, Town Hall District officers and a police helicopter, police said.
