The Coast Guard confirms the body was located last night around 11 p.m.

The canoeist is a male but his age is still unknown.  Police are waiting until next of kin is notified before any more details are released.

The fire department says four canoeists went out. Three of them are not injured but the fourth who could not swim was not wearing a life jacket.
