SEBEWAING TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – A Michigan sheriff says searchers have found the body of a man who called 911 seeking help and reported that he was cold, wet and apparently lost.
The Huron County sheriff’s office say the search near the Sebewaing River began after a cellphone call Tuesday from the man. His location was tracked to Sebewaing Township, about 95 miles north of Detroit. Investigators say he may have been at a party earlier.
The man told a dispatcher he could see a factory. Around midday Tuesday, a Michigan Sugar employee reported finding a vehicle stuck in mud near their treatment pond’s fence.
The search for 21-year-old Parker J. Haire was suspended Tuesday night, but Sheriff Kelly Hanson says in an email Haire was found dead Wednesday morning in waist-deep water.
