Body Found During Search For Missing Fisherman

Posted: Updated:
WHITE RIVER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities searching for a missing fisherman after his empty boat was spotted circling in Lake Michigan say they've found a body and have confirmed that it is that of the missing boater.

According to our media partners at MLive,  the body was found near where a Grand Rapids man went missing after last being seen launching a 26-foot boat Monday into White Lake, located north of Muskegon.

The Muskegon County sheriff's department says the man had planned to head further north and his boat was recovered by the U.S. Coast Guard off White River Township after a resident reported it was circling. The man's vehicle was found at the launch site.

Strong storms moved through the area Monday, which would have caused waves, but sheriff's investigators say it's not known what happened to the man.
