(WXYZ) — The Wayne County Sheriff's Office said the body of a 2nd missing boater from Grosse Ile was found on Thursday morning.
The body of Stephen Rooney, 66, who is a priest from Trenton, was found in Lake Erie by a fishing charter of Stony Point and north of Monroe Harbor in Frenchtown Township by fishermen.
It comes just days after the body of 52-year-old Robert Chiles was found in the Detroit River. Chiles, from Grosse Ile, and Rooney, went missing after a boat capsized Sunday night.
Grosse Ile Police and Fire, the Wayne County Marine Division and Canadian Coast Guard, responded to an area in the Detroit River, just south of Stoney Island, around 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
A boater from Ontario saw the incident happen and helped the seven passengers to safety.
Crews began search and recovery missions on Monday.
It is unclear at this time exactly how the boat capsized. A total of 14 people were on board, including 5 children at the time of the incident.
A boat of this size (around 40 feet) capsizing is very rare, officials said. They're considering whether or not the boat hit something to make it tip over.
The boat reportedly rolled, according to a witness.
Chiles' wife went missing on the Detroit River in 2019.
