DEWEY — The body of a missing Stevens Point man whose boat capsized Oct. 6 in Lake DuBay has been found, according to a Portage County Sheriff’s Department news release.
Police recovered the body of Timothy Coulthurst, 56, in an early morning search Tuesday. Coulthurst had been missing and presumed drowned since the boat he was in capsized near the DuBay Dam. The body of Coulthurst’s fishing partner, 60-year-old James Glodowski of Stevens Point, was found hours after the boat overturned.
Recovery teams spent many days searching for Coulthurst using boats, unmanned aerial vehicles, aircraft, sonar and underwater cameras. Difficult water and weather conditions hampered the search and slowed efforts to find the missing man.
Sheriff’s officials say they hope the discovery brings a measure of closure for the family.
In addition to the Portage County Sheriff’s Department the Marathon County Dive Team; Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources;Dewey, Rudolph, and Stevens Point Fire Departments; Wisconsin Emergency Management, Portage County Coroner’s Office; Consolidated Water Power Company; Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transportation, and the several citizens and other organizations aided in the search and recovery effort.
