A body has been found in Detroit’s Brightmoor neighborhood Friday afternoon.
Remains were discovered in a container inside a vacant house on Greydale Street near Outer Drive and Lyndon.
Police believes the remain are Douglas “Chef Doug” Calhoun who has been missing since the morning of June 1, 2017.
Calhoun, who is a U.S. Marine, returned to his home about 3:30 a.m. in the 3500 block of West Outer Drive in Detroit after a night out with his friends. He let them know by phone that he had made it home safely.
However, that was the last time anyone heard from 39-year-old Calhoun. His vehicle later was found near Fenkell Avenue and Evergreen Road on Detroit’s west side.
Calhoun also failed to show up for either of his two jobs after he went missing.
“Chef Doug” is how friends and customers know the personal chef and caterer. He didn’t show up for a job June 2 and didn’t make a flight to a big event in St. Louis that weekend.
“What I’m feeling, I can’t describe it,” said Eric Phillips, Calhoun’s brother-in-law.
Calhoun is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 230 pounds.
Eric Phillips said if there was trouble Calhoun would have been able to handle himself. He said it’s the unknowns of the situation that makes it hard for Calhoun’s family to cope with his disappearance.
Police say that tips from the public led to the discovery.
Police have been searching that area for the missing chef and former.
