Man Pleads Guilty in Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes Search

The metro-Detroit man who was the focus of a search at the Sleeping Bear dunes pleads guilty to assault and battery. 

In late August, 50 year-old, Daniel Gerard Elliot, was on a family vacation in the Sleeping Bear Dunes area, when he took off with his three kids after pushing his wife out of the vehicle.  The man and his kids were found the next day unharmed but hungry. A sentencing date hasn't been scheduled but his charge carries a 90day sentence.
