LEIGHTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A man’s body from an Allegan County lake after two days of efforts to locate him.

Michael Pawloski, 58, was found around 2:15 p.m. Monday following an extensive search of the lake that utilized a variety of technology and dive crews.

Pawloski was swimming off a pontoon boat without a life jacket Saturday afternoon when he went underwater. Calls to 911 were delayed because of poor cell service, and search efforts were also slowed by inclement weather and elevated water levels.
