Body Found in Hunt for Missing Kayaker

A Missouri State Highway Patrol rescue team found a body Monday evening during the search for a missing kayaker on the James River near Nixa.

The team found the body about 100 yards from where the kayaker was reported to have disappeared.

The body has not been positively identified as the missing man.

A higher than normal water level hampered the search, and rescuers searched areas with slower river flow.
