    Searchers have recovered the body of a kayaker reported missing this weekend in the Delaware River off the southern New Jersey coast.

    Investigators say George Cole, 54, was discovered in the Delaware River around 7:30 p.m. Sunday, according to The South Jersey Times.

    The discovery was made just as officials were ending the search for the night, according to the report.

    Authorities say Cole's wife called police shortly before 3 p.m. Saturday to report that her husband was missing. She said he had been kayaking on the river and that's when she turned to look out to him, the kayak was empty.

    Police are investigating the cause of Cole's death.
