Search teams found the body of missing former Grand Valley State University quarterback Cullen Finnerty Tuesday evening not far from where he disappeared last weekend.
Law enforcement officials say the former Division II national champion quarterback went missing during a fishing trip on the Baldwin River Sunday evening.
Teams found Finnerty's body a 1/2 mile from where his abandoned boat was located. There were no visible signs of injury on the body. Police said there was no evidence of foul play.
Lake County Sheriff Robert Hilts said Tuesday that family members of Cullen Finnerty told investigators the ex-Grand Valley State player "was nervous about something and it was suspected that he might be having some kind of a mental episode."
Finnerty was reported missing Sunday night after he went fishing near Baldwin, about 65 miles north of Grand Rapids.
Lake County Sheriff Robert Hilts said authorities were tracking Finnerty's cellphone "until it went dead." Rescuers were searching the last place they were able to track Finnerty's cell phone. Searchers found a small pontoon boat Finnerty was using to fish.
The 30-year-old led Grand Valley State to three Division II national titles and briefly was a member of the Baltimore Ravens. Former team members of Finnerty made the trip up north to help in the search.
Finnerty is married and his wife recently had the couple's first baby.
Finnerty is originally from Brighton.
An autopsy on Finnerty's body is planned for Wednesday.
