WYANDOTTE – Police here are still searching for a Dearborn man believed to have jumped into the Detroit River from a railing in Bishop Park.

Ramas Paull McCrory, 40, is missing and presumed drowned after some of his clothing was found near the river.

Wyandotte police were called about 12:30 p.m. Sept. 22 on a tip of clothing and prescription sunglasses found on a park bench near the river at the park. A pair of work boots also were found on a ledge on the side of the railing nearest the water.

A U.S. Coast Guard search of the river’s Trenton Channel — initiated that afternoon after the police department contacted the agency — revealed nothing and was called off that night. The search included watercraft and helicopters.

Wyandotte police later ran the license plate of a pickup truck parked in the area throughout the night, which came back to McCrory. A Wyandotte police detective made contact with McCrory’s girlfriend, who said the clothing belonged to her boyfriend, who was missing and had not returned home.

“We will continue to search for Ramas and anyone with any additional information is urged to contact the Wyandotte Police Department,” Police Chief Daniel Grant said in a statement.

McCrory is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 210 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Wyandotte Police Department at 734-324-4438.
