MARINETTE, Wisc. (WLUC) - Law enforcement in Marinette County spent Tuesday searching the Menominee River for the body of Andrew Bray, the missing Norway Man.

Tuesday morning, a snowplow driver discovered a car near the river by Bomber Golf Course in the Town of Niagara.

Footprints lead from the vehicle to the river bank, down a steep hill and out on to a piece of ice.
The vehicle found is registered to Bray.
The 78 year old was reported missing and suicidal on Friday, December 30.

A dive team was called out, assisted by an underwater remote controlled search vehicle or an R.O.V.
That search continued into the night with no success.

Officials say, the search was hampered by dark, deep water and a strong current.
Divers terminated the search due to the inclement conditions.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Marinette County Sheriff's Department at 715-732-7627.
