ORONO, Maine (AP) - Authorities searching for a 37-year-old kayaker who capsized have recovered a body from the Stillwater River in Orono.

The Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/1Y2VlvK ) reports dive crews were in Orono on Wednesday morning to search the river for Mohammad Jamal of Massachusetts. His 7-year-old daughter was rescued earlier.

The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday near the Steam Plant parking lot on the University of Maine campus.

Maine Warden Service Sgt. Alan Gillis says the girl was wearing a life jacket and was able to get near the shore. A firefighter assisted her the rest of the way.

Gillis said earlier on Wednesday Jamal wasn’t wearing a life jacket and was last seen going under the water.
