Body found in reeds along Lake Saint Clair, near Grosse Pointe Yacht Club

GROSSE POINTE SHORES, Mich. (WXYZ) - Medical examiners are working to identify a body found in the reeds along Lake St. Clair in Grosse Pointe Shores early Wednesday morning.

Construction workers at the nearby Grosse Pointe Yacht Club discovered the body around 7 a.m.

The boat the fisherman took off in was later found floating upside down in the water. Divers searched but never found his body.

The Coast Guard and police say they can't confirm if the victim is the missing fisherman. They are only saying that the victim has been in the water for an extended period of time.
