Indiana Conservation Officers located the body of missing 24 year old Tiara Hardy on a side scan sonar image at approximately 5:30 Tuesday evening. The image was confirmed by the Lake County Marine Unit sonar and divers from the Hobart Fire Department were requested to dive and visually confirm. A Hobart Fire Department diver dove on the sonar mark and recovered the body of Tiara Hardy shortly after 6:00 p.m. approximately 150 yards from shore while Gary Fire and Police provided shore support. The Lake County Marine Unit transported the body of Tiara Hardy to a nearby location to transfer her to the Lake County Coroner’s Office. The investigation is still ongoing and no foul play is suspected.
