FRENCHTOSWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard says a search crew has found the bodies of two Detroit-area men who disappeared after going fishing in eastern Lake Erie.
The Coast Guard says 54-year-old Godfried McKinney of Southfield and 64-year-old Kendrick Covington of Detroit headed out from Monroe on Wednesday to go fishing in a 14-foot boat. They were due back that night and reported missing after they didn't return.
The Coast Guard says a U.S. Customs and Border Protection boat found the men's bodies about 10:50 a.m. Thursday about 7 miles off-shore from DTE Energy Co.'s Fermi 2 nuclear plant. The site is near Monroe in Monroe County's Frenchtown Township.
Those involved in the search included a Coast Guard helicopter from Detroit and a Coast Guard boat from Toledo, Ohio.
