TOWN OF NIAGARA (WLUK) -- Officials are searching for a man after his car was found abandoned in Marinette County.

Deputies say they are searching for 78-year-old Andrew Bray of Norway, Michigan.

On Tuesday morning a snowplow driver discovered a car near the Menominee River by Bombers Golf Course in the Town of Niagara.

Bray came back as the registered owner of the car. Bray had been reported missing and suicidal by Michigan authorities.

Marinette County activated its dive team after footprints from the car were seen leading to the river bank, down a steep hill and out onto a piece of ice.

The strong current in the river caused the search to end.
