Holland, Mich. – Police say a body found in western Michigan’s Lake Macatawa is believed to be that of a 25-year-old man who vanished in mid-October.

MLive.com reports that the body was found Saturday afternoon along the lake’s shoreline near the Holland State Park campground.

Ottawa County sheriff’s deputies say they believe the body is that of Demetrius McKnight, a Park Township man who was last seen by family members on Oct. 19.

Relatives found his car in a parking lot about four days after he went missing.

Police had conducted several searches, including searching on the lake, since McKnight was reported missing.

Authorities are urging anyone with information about McKnight to call Silent Observer at 1-877-88-SILENT.
