Has The Le Griffon been found...?

From what I have found in my searching is that The Griffon sunk around the same year that it had actually
Launched. What I want to know is, Has The Le Griffon been found and if so, In which lake can it be found and at what dept of water.

LaSalle's Griffon has not been found. Over the years there have been 22 claims of the discovery of the Griffon. There is an excellent book written by Cris Kohl on the Griffon and the various discovery claims.
We believe that the Griffon most likely totally wrecked in Lake Michigan and the question is where and still to be determined.
