SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities in southeastern Michigan say they found the body of one of two men missing in area lakes and suspended the search for another.

The Macomb County sheriff’s department says a dive team recovered the body of a 44-year-old Hazel Park man from Stony Creek Lake at Stony Creek Metropark about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. It’s in Shelby Township, about 20 miles northeast of Detroit.

He disappeared Monday evening while swimming near Baypoint Beach. His name wasn’t immediately released.

The U.S. Coast Guard said Tuesday night that it’s suspended the active search for a 33-year-old Shelby Township boater who disappeared Monday night in Lake St. Clair near the mouth of the Clinton River.

The Coast Guard says he was trying to help a woman who got tired while swimming. She survived.
