A large-scale search for a missing Seadoo enthusiast on the weekend ended in success.

Police say the man went missing on Lake St. Clair Saturday evening. He was reported missing about 8 p.m. near Mitchell’s Bay.

The man left the proximity of St. Anne Island riding a green and black Seadoo Spark. According to witnesses, he wore a personal floatation device and was headed back to Mitchell’s Bay.

But he never made it.
