The bodies of a West Michigan man and the owner of the boat he was fishing aboard have been recovered in Lake Michigan.
The Ludington Daily News reports Friday that 58-year-old Ray Finholm of Ludington and 67-year-old Bill Sorokin of Plains, Pa., went missing while salmon fishing Thursday off Big Point Sable.
U.S. Coast Guard personnel pulled Sorokin's body from the lake Thursday evening. Finholm's body was found Friday morning near a Mason County beach.
Searchers found a debris field about three miles north of Big Sable Point and investigators believe Sorokin's boat sank in rough waves and wind.
A search began Thursday after the men didn't return as expected.
Two Traverse City-based Coast Guard helicopters searched along with Coast Guard boats from Ludington and Manistee.
