Body In Lake Belonged To Man Missing Since Nov.
KALAMAZOO (AP) – Authorities in Kalamazoo say a body found under the ice in a lake at a city park belonged to a 27-year-old man who disappeared in November.
Police say rescue crews and a dive team got a call Sunday to Spring Valley Park after someone spotted a body in the water.
The Kalamazoo Gazette says the body has been identified as that of Jason K. Bassett. It says he was a graduate of Delton Kellogg High School and worked as an auto detailer.
Jeanne Bassett says her son lived near the park and often walked there. The 185-acre park is on the city’s northeast side on a tributary to the Kalamazoo River.
Police say there are no signs of foul play.
