July 03, 2000

A Howard County woman reportedly drowned yesterday while swimming with friends at Beaver Dam Swim Club in Cockeysville, Baltimore County police said.

Jamee Eben, 24, of Columbia was swimming with her boyfriend and two other friends about 1 p.m. at the club in the 10800 block of Beaver Dam Road when she paused to adjust her bathing suit and went under in about 40 feet of water, said Sgt. John Riebel.

He said Eben's friends and at least two swim club lifeguards searched for about 30 minutes before police were called.

Riebel said visibility in the water was poor. He said a police dive team and its dog went in a boat to where Eben was last seen and the animal picked up a human scent.

Riebel said scuba divers entered the water several times but were unable to find the woman.

The search was called off about 8:15 p.m. and was to resume at 6 a.m today, Riebel said.
