Copy-UPDATE: Michigan authorities recover Winona man's body from lake


HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan authorities say they have recovered the body of a 30-year-old Minnesota man from Lake St. Clair.

Macomb County sheriff's officials say they located the body of Craig Moir Friday night in about 10 feet of water near the Clinton River and off the shore of Macomb County's Harrison Township.

Divers searched a large area of the lake for several hours after being notified that the man from Winona, Minnesota, was missing. He was one of two people on a boat who decided to swim, but the other person returned to the vessel that had drifted away.

Authorities say the boat's owner, a 32-year-old St. Clair Shores man, was arrested on a charge of operating while under the influence. The two other passengers were interviewed and released.


MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities near Detroit are searching for a 30-year-old Minnesota man who is missing in Lake St. Clair.

The Macomb County sheriff's department says Craig Michael Moir of Winona was on a boat with three others near the mouth of the Clinton River late Thursday when he and another person went swimming. The department says the boat drifted away and the other swimmer made it back, but Moir didn't.

The U.S. Coast Guard was notified about 12:15 a.m. Friday and started searching. They're joined by the sheriff's marine division.

The sheriff's department says it told the occupants of the boat to stay on the scene, but the boat operator started heading to a marina. Deputies arrested the 32-year-old St. Clair Shores man on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol.
