LOGAN TWP. — Leonard Allen Vunck has been identified as the man who was found dead in the river Friday night, according to the Michigan State Police. Vunck, 67, of Ludington, had been missing since October 2014, when he hired a taxi to pick him up from his home at Pineview Apartments and to drive him out to Hawley Road about a mile west of Walhalla Road.

Michigan State Police reported that Vunck had been found in the Pere Marquette River in Logan Township but did not give a specific location. Technically, the river that runs through Logan Township is the Big South Branch of the Pere Marquette River, a distributary of the Pere Marquette River. A portion of that river runs close to the intersection of Hawley and Walhalla roads.

Vunck reportedly suffered from a mental illness, had high blood pressure and mild dementia, according to Michelle Elliott, the manager at Pineview Apartments.
