Officials say the body believed to be that of a missing kayaker has been found in the Round Valley Reservoir in Clinton Township, New Jersey.

Witnesses say they saw a man fall out of a kayak Wednesday afternoon.

One witness tried to rescue him but couldn't find him.


Divers found a body late Thursday afternoon.

The Somerset County Prosecutor's Divers went into the water Wednesday night until thunderstorms came through. State Police divers returned at 8 a.m.

He has not yet been identified, but police believe it is the body of man in his 20s possibly from New jersey.

There was an unattended car found at the scene and is likely to be that of the victim.
