    Munising man is missing on Lake Superior
    Posted on August 6, 2012 by Cynthia Thompson

    UPDATE: The Coast Guard has been unable to reach a Munising man sailing around Lake Superior, and the family is asking for help in finding him. The family of Carl Behrend says he was traversing the lake on the pictured 18 foot Catamaran sailboat. The Munising man is the subject of a search by the U.S. and Canadian Coast Guard, but has not responded to calls on marine radio. There may have been a brief sighting of his sail near Michipocoten Island on Friday. If you have information regarding the whereabouts of Behrend or his sailboat, contact your local police agency or the U.S. Coast Guard.

  • That is awesome. However, where I'm from 'Happy Ending' means he's been holed up in a massage parlour for the last 6 days. :) I'm sure he wishes thats where he was also.

  • The "missing" catamaran sailor's name is of Carl Behrend who is described in one article as a "singer - songwriter" but according to this info he's a singer-songwriter-author or maybe a "singer-songwriter-author-sailor".

    Glad he was smart enough to hole up safely rather than challenge a great lake! I'd like to hear all about his adventure after he gets home. One very small picture I found in a news story, it looked to be a Prindle 18 he was on, couldn't tell for sure.
