FORT SCOTT, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have found a body in a Kansas lake while searching for a missing kayaker.

Emergency crews began looking Sunday in Lake Fort Scott for 19-year-old Raymond Harper, of Fort Scott, after his friends recovered his kayak but couldn’t find him.

A helicopter and divers were called in to help before a body that is believed to be Harper’s was found Monday afternoon, the Fort Scott Police Department said in a news release.
