    Never understand why people call family and friends before calling emergency services, but I wasn't there so who knows in this case.

    I've dove that lake many times. Thermoclines are usually at 35 feet with another one around 65-70. Below 70, the temp is in the 30s.
    Diver found around 120 feet. The bottom in that area is at a steep angle. Probably around 45-60 degrees. I don't know where the incline stops but been down to 120 and it kept going. VERY COLD and Dark there. Definite drysuit weather.
