Police: Body washes up on Lake Erie shoreline

A body has washed up on the Lake Erie shoreline around 6 p.m. Tuesday, according to Carroll Township Police.
The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office reports the body was discovered off Division Street, in Carroll Township, near the Davis Besse nuclear power plant.
Sheriff Stephen Levorchick also confirmed the body would be taken to the Lucas County Coroner's Office for identification.
The news comes several weeks after four boaters were reported missing after fishing near Rattlesnake Island, northeast of Put-in-bay.
The bodies of 16-year-old Paige Widmer and 33-year-old Amy Santus were found shortly after the group's vessel was found partially submerged in mid-April.
The two women went on a fishing trip with 32-year-old Bryan Huff of Rossford and 33-year-old Andrew Rose of Maumee.
Levorchick said that both families, of the missing men, were notified of the discovery on Thursday.
In the weeks that followed, searches for the missing boaters took place both on the water and in the air, but the two men have not been found.
