(WXYZ) — The body of a missing father who went boating with his son last month in South Rockwood was found, Michigan State Police tell 7 Action News.

Police haven't told us if they recovered the body of his 6-year-old son yet.

Justin Oaks, 29, and Jaxon Oaks, left their house around 9:48 a.m. on Sunday, March 29.

Their boat, a 14-foot Grumman Aluminum flat-bottom camouflage boat, was discovered later that week.
