UPDATE (June 30):

Steve Curtis Jennings Jr was last seen in the water at Beaver Dam Swim Club at 2:45 p.m. Saturday afternoon; 911 was called after he could not be found.

Among the Baltimore County Fire Department resources sent to the incident on Saturday were two boats and the Urban Search and Rescue truck (USAR 17) from Station 17 in Texas (near Cockeysville). Divers from the Middle River Volunteer Ambulance Rescue Company also responded to assist searching the water.

Rescue crews and divers searched the water unsuccessfully for Steve Curtis Jennings Jr until rescue operations ceased at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

Sunday morning, members of the Baltimore County Police Dive Team responded to the Beaver Dam Swim Club to begin searching the water for Steve Curtis Jennings Jr.

An initial search by police divers for Steve Curtis Jennings Jr was not successful. Early in the afternoon, police requested a “side scan sonar unit” from Central Maryland Task Force Two (a regional task force) so a more detailed underwater search could be conducted. A member of the Baltimore City Fire Department responded with the unit and began to scan underwater.

In the early evening, the scan indicated an object under the water. Divers were immediately sent into the water to verify what the object was. Due to the terrain on the bottom of the quarry, it was difficult to guide the divers, so they had to return to the surface. A stokes basket was then dropped straight down in the water next to the sonar contact, and divers followed the line straight down.

At 7:33 p.m., divers located a body 58 feet underwater. The body was removed from the water at 7:40 p.m. and later confirmed to be Steve Curtis Jennings Jr.

The body of Steve Curtis Jennings Jr was removed to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore City for an autopsy.

UPDATE:

Baltimore County Police have recovered the body of a man who went missing yesterday from a swim club in Hunt Valley.

At 7:40 p.m. this evening, Baltimore County Police Divers removed the body of 36-year-old Steve Curtis Jennings Jr of the 5300 block of 85th Avenue in New Carrolton from the water at Beaver Dam Swim Club.

Steve Curtis Jennings Jr was reported missing late Saturday afternoon when relatives could not find him. He was last seen in the water.

The body of Steve Curtis Jennings Jr will be removed to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore City.
