Search Crews Find Body of Missing Swimmer North of Ludington

The Mason County Sheriff’s Office says the body of a missing swimmer has been found.

Brian Hermann went missing Thursday afternoon at the Lake Michigan outlet of Ludington State Park.

Deputies say search crews found his body at 9 a.m. Saturday.

They say it was 150 ft. offshore of the Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area, eight miles north of the park.

This was the third drowning in the area this week.

Friday, the beach at the Sable River Outlet was closed off because of dangers from last week’s storms.

The sheriff’s office says you should not swim in the mouths of rivers until water levels are back to normal.
