NORTH STONINGTON, Conn. (AP) — Rescuers found the body Sunday of a kayaker who had been missing since Saturday night.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said authorities had been searching for the kayaker since about 10:30 p.m. Saturday in Wyassup Lake in North Stonington.
Searchers found the kayak Sunday morning, and the body was recovered roughly an hour later.
The kayaker was identified only as a 45-year-old man. The cause of death will be determined by the office of the chief medical examiner.
The lake’s boat launch was expected to be closed Sunday.
