Body found at Michigan beach identified as Dilbag Singh

The US Coast Guard confirmed a body was found along the shore of Lake Michigan at Glenlord Beach around 2 p.m. Sunday. 

St. Joseph Police confirmed the body was Dilbag Singh, a man reported missing on Friday, December 30th. 

Singh's car was found earlier Sunday morning 3.5 miles up the coast below a bluff off of the 3000 block of Lakeshore Drive in Shoreham, Michigan. 

According to Dilbag Singh’s co-worker, Sandeep Singh, Dilbag dropped him off at J & B party store where they both work Friday morning, December 30.

Later that day, around 7:30PM, Dilbag's family reported him missing to the St. Joseph Department of Public Safety.

Sandeep Singh says he was acting differently on the day he disappeared.

"Before he goes away, we used to go to gym and everything. When he came back from India, he don't want to do nothing. He was so quiet. He just want to come to work, do his 12 hour shift, go back home, drop anybody who want to go home, drop them home,” said Sandeep.

He saw Dilbag just a few hours before he went missing.

"He came home. He picked me up then he said he's going to go somewhere real quick then come back. I said Ok. And, he never came back. I was trying to call him. I thought he'd be at home or in the bathroom somewhere. Then I tried to call his wife. She said I was trying to call him too, but he's not picking up. Then we all started to call him. All day we was trying to see his location from find my iPhone app on the iPhone because he had iPhone. We was trying to trace location and everything, but we didn't find out nothing. Then he switched off his phone,” said Sandeep.

Police still have not released the cause of death, and an autopsy will be performed within the next 48 hours.
