PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — The body of a 6-year-old Ferrysburg boy reported missing at Holland State Park has been recovered, authorities say.
The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office says its dive team found the body of Iain Rowe around 7:15 p.m. Sunday. He was in Lake Michigan, along the rocks just north of the Holland channel.
Iain’s body was taken to a nearby hospital for an autopsy, but investigators say foul play is not suspected.
Authorities are still searching for a Grand Rapids teen who also went missing at Holland State Park Saturday. The sheriff’s office identified him Sunday as 17-year-old Christian Ngabo.
Witnesses told authorities that Ngabo and his 19-year-old brother were swimming in the water when they began to struggle. The 19-year-old started to swim back and witnesses nearby threw him a flotation device. He was able to get back to shore safely.
Ngabo was last seen struggling in the lake about 40 or 50 yards away from shore. Authorities have transitioned their response to a recovery effort.
Crews suspended the search for Ngabo Sunday night, but planned to return to Lake Michigan Monday morning.
