Michigan authorities say they have recovered the body of a 30-year-old Minnesota man from Lake St. Clair.

Macomb County sheriff's officials say they located the body of Craig Moir Friday night in about 10 feet of water near the Clinton River and off the shore of Macomb County's Harrison Township.

Divers searched a large area of the lake for several hours after being notified that the man from Winona, Minnesota, was missing. He was one of two people on a boat who decided to swim, but the other person returned to the vessel that had drifted away.

Authorities say the boat's owner, a 32-year-old St. Clair Shores man, was arrested on a charge of operating while under the influence. The two other passengers were interviewed and released.
