The body of a missing kayaker from Aiken was found Sunday in the waters off south Florida, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. 

David Lemonds, 47, was found around 2:30 p.m. south of Port Everglades. The Coast Guard said a good Samaritan discovered Lemonds' body. 

Other kayakers told authorities they saw Lemonds leave John U. Lloyd Beach State Park Thursday morning in a 12-foot yellow ocean kayak. Park rangers alerted the Coast Guard after seeing Lemonds' truck overnight in the parking lot with no signs of him having returned to it. 

Lemonds' body was turned over to the Broward County Medical Examiner's Office. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials are investigating the incident.
