Dive teams are to resume their search for a man who went missing in the Detroit River near Grosse Isle after a boat capsized.

WDIV-TV says the search for the 49-year-old man was called off for the night but was to resume Saturday.

The television station says the man was on an 18-foot boat along with his 25-year-old stepson and his 17-year-old friend. The two other men were able to swim to shore.

The Coast Guard says local searchers were involved in the effort after the boat was reported to be taking on water. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
