Body Found By Sailboat Racers In St. Clair River

PORT HURON (AP) – Authorities say the body of a man has been found by sailboat racers along the Canadian side of the St. Clair River.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports the body was found Sunday near a harbor south of the Blue Water Bridge and was recovered by Canadian authorities.

An autopsy was planned. The man’s name wasn’t immediately released.

Crews last week searched for a 48-year-old Canadian scuba diver missing since Sept. 12 following a dive in the St. Clair River. Authorities have said Wilnelmus Bardoel of Ingersoll entered the river with two other divers near the Blue Water Bridge and failed to resurface.

The bridge links Port Huron, Mich., and Sarnia, Ontario.
