ARENAC COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

The search continues for an overdue boater that failed to return home Tuesday night.

At around 10 p.m. on Tuesday the Coast Guard got a call that a boater had gone out on the Saginaw Bay and never returned.

The search continued along the west shore of the Saginaw Bay, near the Pine River in Arenac County on Wednesday, but was called off at 5 p.m. Wednesday due to weather.

The Arenac County Sheriff Dive Team is now in charge of the search.

The search continued on Thursday and authorities said the search would continue on Friday, pending weather conditions.

Police said the missing Au Gres man's boat was found on Tuesday three miles away from shore, anchored with no mechanical problems.
