Police, fire and rescue teams are still searching for two teens who fell through the ice over a Morris County lake Monday night, according to Mt. Olive police.

Around 6:19 p.m. multiple people called 9-11 reporting someone calling for help from the ice on Budd Lake.   Responders broke through roughly 100 ft. of ice where they believed the victims were, but were unable to find either of the missing teens.

The search was called off late Monday and started up again at 7 a.m. Tuesday, according to authorities.IceBroke

During the search state police helicopters circled the lake while responders below used flashlights to try and spot any bodies below the ice.

It is not clear what the two missing teenagers were doing on the ice.
