Divers unable to locate Jamie Lusher's body

BECKET -- Divers were unable to locate the remains of Jamie Lusher Thursday after three days of searching for the 12-year-old’s body. Earlier this week convicted serial killer Lewis Lent admitted to authorities he put the body in a pond.

About 20 divers from Massachusetts and New York searched Greenwater Pond in a grid pattern. Police said although conditions were near-perfect on the surface, divers encountered 40 degree water temperatures and murky conditions near the bottom, which forced them to search by hand.

“It's a difficult, tedious, pain-staking technique, but it's one that's entirely necessary,” said David Procopio, spokesman for the state police. “We remain optimistic, we remain optimistic in the intelligence that brought us here in the first place.”

Divers will return to the pond to continue searching whenever the team is available this summer. They are also expected to use the pond for training exercises where they will also continue searching.

Jamie’s family watched the searched from a command post established along Route 20. Although no evidence was found indicating Jamie was in the pond, they said the search helped bring them closure.

“He [Lent] unwittingly placed my son in a place that my son would love,” said James Lusher, Jamie’s father. “I also can come to a specific spot on this lake and feel confident that's where his body was placed and I can talk to him and someday I will see him again, but not on this earth.”
