A man who went missing while fishing in a small boat on Lake St. Clair over the weekend has been found deceased, according to police.

A body found in the Lake by a boater on Thursday morning has been determined to be that of the 58-year-old Lakeshore man, OPP said in a media release on Thursday.

The man's remains were recovered in the water off of Claireview Drive in Lakeshore.

Police said the man had not been wearing a life jacket.

Authorities launched a search on Sunday after a kayaker spotted an unoccupied vessel on a sandbar and called police.
