(CBS) Police have recovered the body of a man who fell through the ice Sunday morning in Oshkosh, Wis. and while it has yet to be identified, it is believed to be the son of Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin.

Michael T. Philbin, 21, of Ripon, Wis. was reported missing Sunday evening and was last heard from at 2 a.m. Sunday. Police said he was visiting friends in Oshkosh, Wis. According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, there was a report of someone hearing a person fall through the ice around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and police had launched a search.

Joe Philbin has been an assistant coach with the Packers since 2003 and has served as offensive coordinator since 2007. He interviewed for head coaching positions with both the Chiefs and Dolphins last week.

The Packers had a bye week after earning the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. They are set to begin preparations Monday for Sunday’s divisional playoff game against the Giants.
