The 47-year-old Gibraltar man was reported missing by family members Monday when he didn't return home from a fishing trip the day before, he said. The Coast Guard units at Belle Isle and Toledo began a search with air support from Detroit. The Ontario Provincial Police, which assisted in the search, are investigating. The man has not been identified.
