KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. -

Authorities have released the name of a kayaker whose body was found in the Albemarle Sound.

Dare County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Steve Hoggard says the body of Jonathan Rodwell Day of Colington was found at around 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

The U.S. Coast Guard was alerted on Wednesday night that a kayaker was missing, and rescue crews responded with a boat and helicopter search.

Crews found a yellow, 19-foot kayak and fishing gear but had to call off their search for the night.

Authorities think Day fell out of his kayak near Kill Devil Hills.
