Emergency personnel are still searching for a fisherman who went missing on the Baldwin River Sunday night.
The missing fisherman is being identified as Cullen Finnerty. Finnerty played for Grand Valley State and lead them to three Division II national football championships in 2003, 2005, and 2006.
According to the Lake County Sheriff's Department, Finnerty was on his personal fishing pontoon around 9 p.m. Sunday night and didn't return home.
Divers and emergency crews were still searching for him around 4 p.m. on Monday, and at that time, a Michigan State Police helicopter had been called off.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office is using phone records from the man's cell phone to try and find him.
The Lake County Undersheriff tells 7&4 that they dropped the man off at 8:25 p.m. at the river on Sunday.
The last call the man made was to his brother-in-law at 9:37 p.m., the family then called the sheriff's office at 10 p.m. after the call suddenly dropped.
The missing man then told his brother-in-law that he didn't know where he was and he hasn't been heard from since.
Crews plan to continue the search until the sun goes down Monday night.
