Kalamazoo man has been missing for one week, search continues

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Thursday morning, the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department and state police continued searching for a missing Kalamazoo man.

56-year-old Takashi Sugimori has been missing for one week.

Officers say he told his wife he was heading out to Asylum Lake to go cross country skiing last Wednesday, and he hasn't be seen since.

Wednesday afternoon, cadaver dogs, wave runners and boats were out scanning the lake.

At one point, the sonar equipment and the dogs zeroed in on two areas, but did not find Sugimori.

Officers say they are confident they will find him soon.

Thursday's search was unsuccessful for the dive team. They plan to continue the search on Friday.
