BRONSON, MI (WTVB) - The body of a Bronson man who was the subject of a four day search since he went missing last weekend was discovered early yesterday afternoon in the City of Bronson. Authorities don’t suspect foul play in the death of 48-year old Thomas Miller. His body was discovered by an officer in a small pond near the city’s water treatment plant, which is located in the vicinity of Miller’s residence on Matteson Street.
Bronson City Police say an autopsy will be conducted before the end of the week. Miller was last seen Saturday night going to look for his dog that escaped from his fenced in backyard. The extensive ground and air search was started on Sunday. Miller’s dog was found alive and in fairly good health Tuesday morning.
Bronson Police Chief Stephen Johnson said the outpouring of support from the community and area public safety departments has been tremendous. Johnson said while they had hoped for a positive outcome, it was inspiring to watch the community come together in the Miller family’s time of need.
