CONSTANTINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say the body of a 66-year-old man who disappeared after his fishing boat capsized in the St. Joseph River in southwestern Michigan has been found.

WLKM-FM and the Kalamazoo Gazette report an area resident found Tommy McDonald’s body around 6 p.m. Monday.

The St. Joseph County sheriff’s department says the man was fishing with his son early Sunday when he stood up and caused the boat to overturn. The department says both men fell into the water and the son was unable to save his father in the fast current.

Dive teams searched Sunday in Constantine Township but had to stop because of poor visibility. Authorities say McDonald’s body was found roughly two miles from where he fell into the water.
