GRAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- A missing canoeist's body was found Monday morning in a Mecosta County Lake, hours after he disappeared.
Marvin Coker, 60, of Ruby Creek, attempted to cross a lake in the Haymarsh State Game Area around dusk Sunday. Coker was headed to pick up his sister who was hunting on the east side of the lake. His sister said Coker yelled across the water that he would come get her.
Investigators say Coker fell out of the canoe and was not wearing a life jacket, however there were life jackets in the canoe. Coker's sister spent the night in the woods and called 911 Monday morning when she saw his overturned canoe.
