MUSKEGON, Mich. — Muskegon rescue crews announced the body of Lance Jenkins was found Tuesday.

The 29 year old Fruitport Township man was one of three men swept off the south breakwall at Pere Marquette Park Sunday night.

Rescue efforts were hampered by high winds and strong waves, but two of the men were able to get themselves out of the water and call 911.

After over two days of searching, Jenkins was found in the water near Muskegon State Park.
