A person was discovered floating in Ford Lake in Ypsilanti Township Friday morning, a Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office spokesman confirmed.
The Sheriff’s Office Marine Division had been called to the area near the 5900 block of Bridge Road about 11 a.m., said Sgt. Geoff Fox.
Huron Valley Ambulance was also at the scene.
Witnesses said a woman who worked at the apartments called police after seeing the man's body.
Divers and deputies in the boat pulled the person out of the water at 1:30 p.m., about two-and-a-half hours after first responders were first called to the scene.
The circumstances around the man ending up in the water are still unclear. Rumors about how the man ended up in the water started almost immediately after the search began.
Deputies at the scene did not speak to AnnArbor.com.
No further information, including whether the person is a man or a woman, was immediately available.
