Ex-Div. II champion quarterback Finnerty missing

WEBBER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities are searching for Cullen Finnerty, a quarterback who led Grand Valley State to three Division II national football championships after he failed to return from fishing near his northern Michigan cabin.

The Lake County sheriff’s department says the search continued Monday evening for the 30-year-old Finnerty, who didn’t return Sunday night. WZZM-TV says his family owns a cabin near Bray Creek State Forest Campground.

The site is near Baldwin and about 65 miles north of Grand Rapids.

Authorities say searchers found a small pontoon boat Finnerty was using to fish.

Finnerty played for Grand Valley State teams that won Division II titles in 2003, 2005 and 2006, and he briefly played for the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens.
