MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - UPDATE 6:15 a.m.: The search is now over, boats are out of the water at Marquette’s Upper Harbor and the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office says there is no concern at this time; the boater was fishing and found safe.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the boater did have a plan in place before leaving. The man told his family he was going fishing but did not return by the time expected. That prompted the search by the Coast Guard and Marquette County Sheriff’s Office.

Officers say the man’s family did the right thing by alerting authorities when he did not return.
