Divers searching Zukey Lake for missing Whitmore Lake man
HAMBURG TOWNSHIP - Authorities are expected to continue their search for a 58-year-old Whitmore Lake man who saved two people, including his son, before apparently drowning in a Livingston County Lake.
Divers will continue searching Zukey Lake this morning.
Hamburg Township police told WWJ-AM the man dove into the lake Monday afternoon after his 16-year-old son and a family friend who were swimming near the family's pontoon boat drifted away and called for help. He swam over to them and helped them back to the boat, police said. The boys later lost sight of the man.
Hamburg Township Police told the Daily Press and Argus they received a call reporting a possible drowning at 5:25 p.m. Monday.
Monday's search by divers from the Livingston and Washtenaw County sheriff's departments was unsuccessful.
