Authorities ID man found dead in Muskegon River

NEWAYGO, Mich. (WOOD) – Authorities have identified a man who died after he went missing while tubing on the Muskegon River Saturday in Newaygo County.

Dwight Keene Coleman, 25, of Grand Rapids, went missing in the area of Devil’s Hole in Brooks Township, which is located several miles east of Newaygo.

Sheriff’s deputies and firefighters who were called in to search for Coleman found his body about a mile and a half downstream from where he went missing, according to a Facebook post by the Newaygo County Sheriff’s Office.

It’s unclear what caused Coleman to go missing. His cause of death also has not been released.

The incident is still under investigation.

Sheriff’s authorities urge anyone using the Muskegon River to be cautious, as water levels are higher than usual, causing higher currents.
