Two men are missing in Lake Michigan after high waves swept them from a pier in eastern Wisconsin.

Keith Risse with the Sheboygan Fire Department says the men were fishing on South Pier on Sunday afternoon when they were washed from the pier. A third man who also was knocked into the water was rescued and taken to a hospital.

U.S. Coast Guard used a helicopter and a Milwaukee rescue boat to search for the men. The Sheboygan County dive team suspended operations Sunday evening because of the rough water.

Officials plan to resume the search Monday morning.

The pier in Sheboygan, 55 miles north of Milwaukee, was closed because of the dangerous conditions.
