BANGOR TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- Van Buren County Deputies are investigating the drowning of a 76-year-old woman from Illinois who was vacationing with her son at the family’s summer cottage on Van Auken Lake in Bangor Township.

Deputies say the woman suffered from Alzheimer’s and dementia.

They both went to bed at 10 p.m. Sunday night and when he checked on her at 2 a.m. she was missing. After searching the neighborhood, he found her body in the lake and called authorities. She could not be resuscitated.

They don’t believe it was suspicious but have ordered an autopsy.
