PORT SHELDON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - Two females were found safe near an Ottawa County lake after their paddle boat became partially submerged.
Another boater spotted two people on the boat on Pigeon Lake Wednesday evening. Some time later he looked and saw the same boat in trouble and no one on the vessel.
The boater called 911 around 8:30 p.m. and said the two occupants -- a man and a woman -- were missing.
A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter and an Ottawa County dive team were dispatched to the lake near Port Sheldon Township.
The boaters were later located on shore and unharmed, and police said the boaters were actually two females.
Police said the boat was anchored and then gotten loose after the boaters took it to shore.
A sheriff's deputy car and a Michigan State Police SUV were among the damaged vehicles.
A fire damaged three garages and some homes in a Grand Haven neighborhood early Thursday morning.
The suspects stole cash and fled the scene.
