Missing boater search Sunday night unfounded

A report of a possible missing boater on Sunday turned out to be unfounded, according to an official at Coast Guard Station Grand Haven. The Coast Guard was notified about 7:45 p.m. Sunday that there was a boat anchored in the Grand River in the area of 144th Avenue and Mercury Drive, near the Odawa boat launch in Grand Haven Township. The caller reported there was nobody around the boat, the official said.

The Coast Guard sent their 25-foot response boat to the scene, and that crew searched the area for about four hours, the official said. A Coast Guard helicopter also searched the area, he said.
