“We want to know where they are,” said Ramos’ godmother, Elizabeth Bautista. “We’re worried sick. There’s a knot in our throats. It feels like it’s choking us.”

According to CBS Chicago, a friend in the Police Department told the family the car Ramos and Lemon were in, a dark blue Dodge Avenger, was picked up on a city camera here at LaSalle and Washington streets right in the Loop. But the men were not seen again afterward.

An hour later, crews pulled the car from the lake near the empty boat docks. There are no barricades to keep a car from falling off.
