ANN ARBOR (AP) -- Ann Arbor police say two people who were the subject of a search after they didn't return from a trip on the Huron River actually abandoned their rented canoe when they got tired of boating.

Police tell AnnArbor.com that a 43-year-old Whitmore Lake man and a female companion rented a canoe Saturday afternoon at one canoe livery and they were expected Saturday evening at another livery to get a bus ride back.

A canoe livery employee called police when they didn't show up.

Police searched for them Saturday and Sunday, and the canoe was found with both life jackets and paddles inside.
