The body of a man missing since January was recovered near the Wisconsin shoreline of the Menominee River in Niagara, Wisconsin Friday evening.

According to the Marinette County Sheriff, Jerry Sauve, a male body was recovered around 6:45 p.m. Friday, downstream from Bomber's Golf Course. The body was noticed by volunteers from the Michigan Backcountry Search and Rescue Team.

Investigators and Marinette County Coroner George Smith made positive identification of the remains as 78-year-old Andrew Michael Bray. Bray went missing in early January from the Norway and Dickinson County area.

On January 3rd Bray's car was located near the river at Bomber's Golf Course and footprints were found in the fresh snow going down the river bank and out on a piece of ice.

Bray had been reported missing and endangered, and was believed to be suicidal. His death is being ruled a suicide and no foul play is suspected in the investigation.
