The bodies of two duck hunters who went missing near Lake St. Clair overnight have been recovered, according to the Macomb County Sheriff's Office.

According to deputies, 59-year-old Timothy Hughes and his 24-year-old son Daniel left their Jackson County home on Saturday to go hunting near Lake St. Clair. They were supposed to return on Saturday afternoon but never showed up.

Around 2 a.m. Sunday, Macomb County got a missing persons report, and began a multi-agency search with the U.S. Coast Guard, Canadian Coast Guard and St. Clair County Sheriff's Office.

On Sunday afternoon, their bodies were recovered in Canadian waters, about four miles from Seaway Island. Their boat was found in the same area.
