    Mystery: Boat of missing Macomb man found sunken in lake

    A boat belonging to a missing Macomb County man has been found submerged in Lake Huron, and authorities say it appears there was a deliberate attempt to sink it.

    Patrick Michael Presutti, 60, of Macomb Township was reported missing by his wife Sept. 1.

    A 31-foot Sea Ray Sundancer cabin cruiser, registered to Presutti, was found Monday, but Presutti remains missing.

    The U.S. Coast Guard found the vessel, which was about 7 1/2 miles east of Forestville in about 150 feet of water.

    Macomb County Sheriff's Capt. Elizabeth Darga said Presutti docks his boat at Bouvier Bay Yacht Club in Fair Haven. She said Presutti's vehicle was found near there, and someone saw him walk across a foot bridge and leave the marina by himself in the boat out onto the lake about 6 p.m. Aug. 30.

    Darga said the matter continues to be treated as a missing person case, and there is "nothing to indicate foul play" at this time.

    Are there any boaters on here? In the article re this part: "the vessel's strainer cover was off, and the cover and wing nuts to hold down the cover were gone, so the boat was taking on water".

    Is there any way this could be an accident? You can tell I'm no boater LOL.

    "Authorities say a body that washed ashore along Lake Huron has been confirmed to be that of a 60-year-old man reported missing by his wife."
