WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve found the body of a 21-year-old man who disappeared in a lake at Stony Creek Metropark in suburban Detroit after jumping from a rented paddleboat.

The Macomb County sheriff’s department says that searchers found the body of Malcolm R. Fairley of Pontiac on Wednesday night and says medical examiners confirmed his identity Thursday.

The lake is in Washington Township, near Rochester and about 25 miles north of Detroit.

Crews began the search Sunday evening. Witnesses say the last they saw of him was his hands grasping above the water’s surface before he disappeared from view.

Police with Huron-Clinton Metroparks say Fairley wasn’t wearing a life preserver.
