Man missing since Oct. 13 found dead in Kalamazoo River

The cause of death has not yet been determined.

SAUGATUCK, Mich. - The man police have been searching for since Oct. 13 has been found dead in Allegan County.

Justin Brown, 39, was located on Monday, Oct. 22, in the Kalamazoo River near Coral Gables. Allegan County Undersheriff Mike Larsen said a contracted deputy, who works for the city of Saugatuck, discovered Brown's body as he was checking the docks Monday morning. Brown's body surfaced about 100 yards from where he was last seen.

"Luckily, we were able to identify him quickly and easily notify the family and we'll be continuing the investigation depending on information we receive from the post exam," said Undersheriff Larsen.

Larsen said he expects the autopsy to be completed within the next few days. He said there did not appear to be any signs of injury or foul play, however, neither will be ruled out until after the autopsy results are back.
