Dive Team recovers the body of missing 45 year-old boater in Lake St. Clair

The Macomb County Marine Division responded at 8:05 p.m. Friday to a distress call via the marine radio of a missing person from a boat just east of Lake St. Clair Metro Park.

Authorities have recovered the body of a 44-year-old man who jumped off a boat and died in Lake St. Clair.

According to the sheriff's office, they found the body of 45-year-old Virdest Orlando Day about 300 feet south of Huron Pointe off of Lake St. Clair Metropark. "We want to remind everyone who goes out on the water to understand the risks, always be vigilant to help minimize accidents, always wear a life jacket and have a working knowledge of your safety equipment".

One person fell into the water without a life jacket.

Deputies say it is unknown if alcohol played a role in the incident.

A Coast Guard response boat and helicopter continue to search the area using the daylight visibility to maximize any opportunity to locate the man. Personnel from the Coast Guard Auxiliary, Macomb County Police and a Macomb County helicopter are also involved in the search.

The remaining passengers were able to help the first and third passengers back onto the boat, but lost sight of the second passenger.

Boaters in the area are urged to report anything they see that might correlate to this case.
