Dive team recovers body of missing boater

Posted: Updated:

Police have recovered the body of a man who went missing Sunday on a Mid-Michigan lake.

Thomas Kelly, 47, of Argentine Township, disappeared Sunday about 7 p.m. while on Genesee County’s Lobdell Lake.

Witnesses told the Argentine Township Police Department Kelly was out on a boat pulling two young children, ages 6 and 7, on a tube.

Witnesses said when the tube flipped, and the children went into the water, Kelly and another adult on the boat dove in after them.

The children and the other adult were pulled to safety by another boat, but Kelly had already gone under the water.

His body was recovered by the Genesee County Sheriff’s dive team about 3:30 p.m. Monday.
