PRAIRIEVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. Authorities say divers have been searching Gull Lake in southwestern Michigan for a man who fell overboard and likely drowned.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports that a couple from the Grand Rapids area launched their boat in Prairieville Township Saturday morning with plans to go fishing.

Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Pali Matyas says both fell out of the boat while going across the lake. The woman swam to safety but the man went down in the water and wasn't seen again.

Authorities have not released the man's name.

Matyas says the sheriff's office dive team is searching the lake but consider it a recovery operation.
