    Missing kayaker's body found in Middlebury pond

    MIDDLEBURY (AP) — Rescue workers recovered the body of a missing kayaker in Middlebury on Sunday.

    Middlebury Fire Chief Brett Kales told the Connecticut Post that the body of the kayaker who was reported missing in Long Meadow Pond on Saturday was found Sunday morning.

    The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and several fire departments began searching Saturday afternoon after a report that a kayak had overturned.

    Initial reports indicated two people were in the kayak, but officials subsequently determined the kayak was operated by a 27-year-old man with no one else in it.

    WFSB-TV reported a paddle and a set of belongings were found at the pond. The search was called off shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday and resumed Sunday morning.

    The kayaker's name was not immediately released.
