Albemarle County police are searching for a Doswell teenager who was last seen swimming in an abandoned quarry with friends on Tuesday near Schuyler.

Late Wednesday afternoon, authorities said they had suspended their search for Henry Christian Morin, 18, and would resume their efforts Thursday.

Police said they will release more information on the missing teenager as it becomes available.

Albemarle police officers responded to a call to assist fire and rescue personnel about 6 p.m. Tuesday in the 8700 block of Schuyler Road, near the road’s intersection with Quarry Hill Lane.

Crews were called to the scene for a water rescue in an abandoned quarry but were unable to find the person.

The area was the center of soapstone mining from the late 1890s throughout the 20th century. The activity left several deep quarries with ponds that can be 45 feet deep or deeper.
