Plymouth: Missing Kayaker’s Body Found Near Hoyts Pond

Plymouth police are investigating the death of an individual who was found on a dirt path near Hoyts Pond this morning (Wednesday, September 2). 

What began as a search for a missing swimmer on College Pond road is now an investigation into the cause of death, as authorities discover a body near Hoyts Pond.

Plymouth Police Captain Jon Rogers told WATD that police received a call at 10:30 a.m. today from a woman saying a male companion had not returned from kayaking on Tuesday. She reportedly found the empty kayak and notified police.

A dive team was sent to the area to begin searching for the missing man.

The search was called off when a body was found on a dirt path.

Rogers said the man was 41 years old but police are not releasing his identity. The death is not thought to be suspicious.
