Five days after going missing from his nearby home, a Michigan doctor was discovered dead beneath the ice of a frozen pond.

Around 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Blackman-Leoni Public Safety (BLDPS) confirmed that divers had pulled Dr. Bolek Payan’s body “from a pond on the land near his residence.”

Divers discovered Dr. Payan’s body today under the ice after drilling holes in a nearby pond’s ice yesterday after being unable to find anything on land, according to the BLDPS.

Using password-protected security cameras, police were able to eventually access Payan’s last known location on Thursday afternoon, according to the authorities.

Due to the weather on the day he left his home and the fact that he was in the water, they continued, “Detectives believe Dr. Payan would have been dead, previous to when he was reported missing.”

The BLDPS also stated that “K-9 dogs, drones, and on foot” had all been used to explore Payan’s property before the body was discovered.

The autopsy and toxicology tests will be performed by the Jackson County Medical Examiner’s Office, which will help with the investigation of this occurrence, they stated.

The BLDPS update came to an end “For their assistance throughout this incident, we appreciate the Jackson County Dive Team, Michigan Search and Rescue, J-DART, the nearby residents, and the general public. We are praying for the family and friends of Dr. Payan.”

According to his professional bio, Payan graduated from Midwestern University Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2017 and specialized in psychiatry. On Thursday, he was observed leaving his place of employment, Henry Ford Jackson Hospital.

The BLDPS reported on Sunday that although his car was discovered at his home in Leoni Township, he had not been in touch with anyone, including his employment, family, or acquaintances.

As of late, the Midwest and East Coast of the United States have experienced severe weather, including a historic winter storm that dumped up to 50 inches of snow in western New York during the holiday weekend. Payan’s death coincides with these meteorological conditions. At least 50 people have died as a result of the storm, including 27 in Buffalo.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz of New York confirmed the deaths late on Monday, stating that 14 victims were discovered outside while others passed away due to power shortages and delays brought on by the storm.
