GARFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities searching for a woman who disappeared while swimming in a western Michigan lake say they've found a body.

The Grand Rapids Press and TV stations WOOD and WZZM report the Newaygo County sheriff's department says it believes that the body found Tuesday is that of Brandi Humphrey. The Grand Rapids mother of two disappeared on Sunday at Kimball Lake and authorities had searched for her since then.

The discovery came after search crews brought in more advanced equipment and extra divers.

Witnesses say she had been on a pontoon boat with a group. She was not believed to be wearing a life jacket at the time she disappeared.

The lake is in Garfield Township near Newaygo, which is about 30 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.
