COOPER TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- A man has drowned in a pond at Markin Glen Park. It happened late Saturday night and was only revealed in a news release Monday night.

Kalamazoo County Deputies say that they received a call about a missing person at the park in Cooper Township, just north of Kalamazoo.

Family members were concerned because 43-year-old Charles Hunter of Kalamazoo was a diabetic. He had last been seen walking near the beach area in the park.

They began searching the areas above water while the dive team was called and found nothing. He was found drowned in pond shortly after the dive team began searching.

The case is still under investigation.
