Search suspended for man who tried to rescue boy

BERLIN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

Authorities have suspended their search in western Lake Erie for a 36-year-old Detroit-area man who disappeared after jumping into the water to save an 8-year-old boy.

Monroe County Sheriff Dale Malone says a 28-year-old woman called 911 about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday, saying her boyfriend and son were in the water off Estral Beach. It's in Berlin Township, Mich., 30 miles northeast of Toledo, Ohio.

Malone says the couple and boys ages 3 and 8 were on an unanchored boat. They're from Oakland County's Waterford Township.

He says the 8-year-old wore a life jacket and jumped into the water but couldn't return to the drifting boat.

Malone says the man wasn't wearing a jacket when he jumped in. A passing boat rescued the boy, but the man remained missing Thursday.
