A Missing Michigan Doctor Was Discovered Dead in a Frozen Pond
A body belonging to a missing Michigan physician who had been gone for five days was discovered in a frozen pond close to his house. On December 22nd, Dr. Bolek Payan was last seen leaving his place of employment, which was the Henry Ford Jackson Hospital in Jackson, Michigan.
After a number of days during which he had “no contact with his employer, family or friends,” the Blackman-Leoni Public Safety Department announced on Facebook on Christmas Eve that he was a missing person and requested assistance from the general public in locating him. They made this request after writing that he had “no contact with his family or friends.”
On Tuesday, the department of public safety announced that divers had located Payan’s body and brought it to the surface. The video surveillance system in Payan’s home allowed the police officers looking into his disappearance to have access to it, and the footage they saw revealed that Payan had walked away from his house on the afternoon of December 22.
According to the public safety department, after investigating the area around Payan’s home with the assistance of K-9 dogs and drones, the decision was made to cut holes in the ice of a pond that was located on Payan’s property.

“Detectives believe that Dr. Payan would have been deceased prior to when he was reported missing due to the weather conditions on the day that he left his residence and the fact that he was in the water,” the public safety department said. “The weather conditions on the day that he left his residence and the fact that he was in the water.” Our condolences go out to Dr. Payan’s family and friends during this difficult time.
According to the National Weather Service, a significant arctic cold front moved across the Michigan area from the afternoon of December 22 (the day Payan was last seen) to December 25 (the day after Payan’s disappearance).
The principal effects of the cold front were “wind and cold,” and on December 22, temperatures dropped swiftly across the United States, with some areas of Michigan experiencing temperature drops of more than 35 degrees.
The temperature of the air in Michigan stayed in the single digits until the 25th of December, while wind gusts caused wind chills to reach into the minus-teen range. According to the Jackson County Public Safety Department, the body of Payan will be subjected to an autopsy as well as toxicology tests by the Jackson County Medical Examiner’s Office.
