Man Missing in Lake Michigan After Sailboat Found Adrift

The U.S. Coast Guard is looking for a man on Lake Michigan.

The Coast Guard found Joseph Kiehm’s boat, The Wild Irish, adrift on Lake Michigan about 10 miles northeast of Milwaukee Thursday.

He was last seen on the 26-foot sailboat in Milwaukee Harbor between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Tuesday.

Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City and other search teams tried to find him.

They say Kiehm could have traveled 128 miles in any direction. They’ve searched about 12,000 square miles from noon Wednesday until Thursday night when they called off the search.

If you have any information about Kiehm, call the Coast Guard Sector Lake Michigan at 414-747-7190.
