MOUNT OLIVE, N.J. - Police in Mount Olive, New Jersey say the body of a missing teen was pulled from the icy waters of Budd Lake today, and the search for a second missing teen has been suspended until tomorrow.

Rescuers broke through more than 100 feet of ice and New Jersey State Police helicopter illuminated the scene before the search was called off last night. Crews returned to the scene today, and state police dive teams used sonar to try and locate the bodies and were on the bottom of Budd Lake for more than two hours.
