Body found in Rouge believed to be missing student

Posted: Updated:

Dearborn police say searchers have found a body in the Rouge River believed to be that of a 27-year-old University of Michigan-Dearborn student who disappeared after going to the aid of a female student a week ago.

Police aren't releasing his name until they notify his family. He lived in Plymouth.

In a statement, police say the man went into the river to try to help a 23-year-old Dearborn Heights woman on May 13. They say she made it to shore but he disappeared.

They were in a swift stretch of water behind the former estate of Ford Motor Co. founder Henry Ford.

Police say the body was found about 11 a.m. Tuesday near campus.
