KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A State Police team is expected to join the search for a missing Kalamazoo man who may have drowned in Asylum Lake last week.

Undersheriff Paul Matyas says recovery teams were able to use sonar in the part of the lake where they think 56-year-old Takashi Sugimori may have tried to walk on the ice last week and fallen through.

He says the sonar found two spots that need further investigation. A cadaver dog also signaled there might be something down there.

Matyas says they are also using underwater cameras.

If they spot anything, the next step is to send in divers.
