Memorial Service Planned for Missing Mich. Men

Posted: Updated:

BRIGHTON, Mich. (AP) - A private memorial service is planned Friday for two Michigan men missing since they went to Canada for a fishing trip last month.

 The Detroit Free Press reports 70-year-old Earl Zellen and his 40-year-old son Matt left July 21 and were reported missing on a lake in Nunavut after they failed to show up July 29 for a charter aircraft flight. Police on Aug. 1 called off the search for the men.


Their boat and fishing gear were spotted, and the boat had run out of gas. Two Canadian Air Force C-130 Hercules helped searched the Dubawnt Lake area last month. Others searched the shore of the large remote lake, but found no trace of them.


Earl Zellen lived in Brighton and Matt Zellen was of Bloomfield Hills.
