Missing swimmer's body recovered from Lake St. Clair

- Search teams have found the swimmer who went missing near Lake St. Clair Metropark in Harrison Township.

The victim was found at about 9:30 p.m. Friday by the U.S. Coast Guard and the Macomb County Sheriff's Marine Division. 

The man was identified as 30-year-old Craig Moir of Winona, Minn.

The Macomb County Sheriff's Office says two people went out for a swim last night and the 32-foot Sea Ray boat drifted away from them.  One person was able to make it back to the boat, but Moir went missing and was presumed drowned.

The Coast Guard had come to the scene of the missing boater around 12:15 a.m. Friday and began looking for him. The Sheriff's Marine Division was contacted shortly after that.

The driver of the boat and the two other people on board were told to stay on scene by the Coast Guard, by they instead headed back to Miller Marina in St. Clair Shores. 

Sheriff Deputies stopped them at the marina and while questioning them, they learned the driver of the boat was intoxicated. The 32-year-old man was then arrested and is being held at the Macomb County Jail.

The other two people on board, a 28-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man, were questioned and have been released.
