I'm confused as to why the family wouldn't have remained in Summersville to help with search efforts?

The family was sent home after a week to make arrangements. They were told it could be weeks before Mitch was found. Today was Mitch birthday. Perhaps the family can begin to get closure now. Terrible tradgedy for a terrific young man and his wife.

I'm so sorry for your loss! I hope the recovery of his body can somehow ring some closure and peace to his family! I'm also sorry that some idiot chose this forum to make a complete jerk of himself or herself! This is a fantastic community full of compassionate people. God Bless his family!

My fiancée and I were guests of Mitch and Maranda last 4th of July at the lake. They loved the lake and we're quite fond of the community. The town and lake are beautiful. I am sorry that some jerk is making you feel like you have to apologize on behalf of your community.

The family left only because they were told to. They needed to make arraignments for this young man. The people conducting the search advised that it could be months (drain the lake) before he was found. Do not judge why they left. This man was amazing and his new wife and both their family and freinds are at a huge loss. Mitch and Maranda are both amazing individuals for such a young age.

This is heartfelt sorrow that this person lost his life at the lake and my heart goes out to his family and friends in and out of state. As I spoke with a state trooper on another situation, they got a call saying that the person has been found. I personally don't,t know the people involved but I'm sending my heartfelt thoughts to you and keeping you in prayers.

My understanding is yes they found a body but paper states they will know for sure after the state medical examiner does investigation and r reports are in. Keep these families and friends in your prayers?

We have not yet been told of memorial service plans. I would imagine that they will be held in Louisville, OH, but this is just my assumption.

@Madison...reassure your son that Mitch would want him to enjoy the nature and the water as he did . Thank you for your compassion.

First, I am not a family friend,but it stated in the paper they found a body in the lake on Monday afternoon. I also found out, while I was talking to a state trooper about another situation. So much tragedy has happened lately. To the families. and friends, as I said I do not know you, but want to let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers. With deepest sympathy, my heart goes out to you.

Have they figured out or come to the conclusion in how he drowned or what pulled him under?

From reading his obituary, it sounds like he was way too athletic to have ever drowned. A very strong young man, especially being a kayaker.

Autopsy came back. Carbon monoxide played a factor and it was a wet drowning.

Are you trying to start crap? He didn't have any kids and had only been married for 8 months. And Canton is more than hour away.
