DETROIT — The U.S. Coast Guard says boaters have found a man's body in the Detroit River.

WDIV-TV reports the Coast Guard says the body was found Sunday morning. The man wasn't immediately identified.

The Coast Guard has been searching for a 44-year-old man who fell overboard in the river about 1:30 a.m. Thursday. He was watching a concert from a 33-foot boat anchored in the river off shore from the amphitheater at Detroit's Chene Park.

Coast Guard Cmdr. Austin Ives tells WJBK-TV that witnesses saw the man disappear under the surface in the fast-moving water.

Wednesday night's show featured Avery Sunshine as well as the duo Kindred the Family Soul.
