Missing Doctor From Michigan Discovered Dead in Frozen Pond: In a frozen pond next to his house, a Michigan doctor who had been missing for five days was discovered dead. On December 22, Dr. Bolek Payan was last saw leaving Henry Ford Jackson Hospital in Jackson, Michigan.
The Blackman-Leoni Public Safety Department announced on Facebook on Christmas Eve that he had been gone for several days and had “no communication with his job, family, or friends.” They pleaded with the public for assistance in locating him.
The public safety division announced Tuesday that divers had found Payan’s body. When detectives looking into Payan’s disappearance gained access to a system of home cameras, they could view a film that demonstrated Payan had left his house on foot on the afternoon of December 22. According to the public safety department, the choice was made to make holes in the ice of a pond on Payan’s property after the area around his home was searched using K-9 dogs and drones.

According to the public safety agency, given the weather on the day Dr. Payan left his home and the fact that he was in the water, “detectives believe Dr. Payan would have been deceased before when he was reported missing.” “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Dr. Payan.”
According to the National Weather Service, a strong arctic cold front affected the Michigan region from the afternoon of December 22—the day Payan was last heard from—through December 25. The main effects of the cold front were “wind and cold,” with temperatures dropping quickly on December 22 in some regions of Michigan, including by more than 35 degrees.
