CHICAGO -- A television reporter left her job Tuesday after she was caught on video in a swimsuit at the home of a man whose wife disappeared two months ago _ a story she was assigned to cover _ raising ethical questions about her conduct.

The video, posted on a rival station's Web site, shows veteran WMAQ-TV reporter Amy Jacobson wearing a halter bikini top and towel near the pool at Craig Stebic's suburban Plainfield home.

Jacobson's two young children and a bare-chested Stebic are also shown in the video, shot Friday.

Staff members received a memo Tuesday afternoon from station officials saying that "Amy Jacobson is leaving NBC 5 News, effective immediately," according to the Chicago Tribune, which obtained a copy.

"Amy's contributions as a reporter over the last 10 years are numerous," the memo said. "Her hustle and passion for news have given us an edge on many top stories. She's worked long hours on many days, and we appreciate all she's done."

Jacobson had not appeared on air since news of the video broke Monday
