Authorities say a former college football quarterback who went missing over the weekend has been found dead in Michigan.

Lake County Undersheriff Dennis Robinson says Cullen Finnerty's body was found Tuesday night. Robinson says the cause of death isn't yet known, but authorities don't suspect foul play.

Finnerty led Grand Valley State University to three Division II national titles and more than 50 wins during his four years as a starter in Allendale, Mich., last decade.

Authorities have said family members had expressed concern that the 30-year-old may have suffered "a mental episode" before going missing Sunday while fishing along the Baldwin River.
