HILL COUNTY -- Authorities have found the body of the kayaker that went missing on the Brazos River Monday.

60-year-old Ray Nicholas was found south of the Lake Whitney dam in the Brazos River.

Hill County Sheriff Jeffery Lyon told Fox 44 a helicopter spotted Nicholas' body. That's when an air boat from the Hillsboro Fire Department recovered the body.

He was with two other kayakers when he went missing.

Game wardens, Department of Public Safety, Sheriff's deputies, and several other agencies were searching for Nicholas since Monday but had to suspend over night due to darkness.

Hill County Justice of the Peace pronounced Nicholas dead on the scene.
