BRONSON, MI (WTVB) - Even though there has been no official word released by Michigan State Police, media reports today say that the body of a 48-year-old Bronson man missing since Saturday night has been found.
WWMT-TV is reporting that Thomas Miller's body was found in a treatment pond in Bronson near the water treatment center. Police say that foul play is not suspected, but they are awaiting the results of an autopsy before making a final ruling. Police say Miller’s body was found by an officer on Wednesday who was working within the search grid that had been established. The retention pond itself is about 400 yards from the cornfield where Miller’s dog was recovered on Tuesday.
Miller went missing Saturday evening around 9 pm, after he went outside to search for his dog. “Ziggy” was found Tuesday, scared and hungry, but appeared to be in fair health and was turned over to Miller's family. Over 30 public safety personnel from around the county as well as the Angola and Orland, Indiana Fire Departments and the Michigan Department of Corrections Emergency Response team helped in the search effort Tuesday in addition to the on-going assistance from the Michigan State Police. Also, a large number of volunteers allowed the Miller family to set up civilian teams to check out territory adjacent to the primary search area.
