SAUGUS, Mass. (AP) - Authorities have located a kayak belonging to a Saugus man who went missing on a fishing trip, and a body believed to be him has been recovered.

State police say the unoccupied kayak that belongs to 72-year-old Craig Dustin was found Wednesday on the beach at the Revere-Winthrop line. Authorities are working to identify a body recovered in the area that matches Dustin’s physical and clothing descriptions.

Dustin was reported missing Tuesday by his son when he didn’t return from a kayaking trip on the Saugus River. His car was found still parked near the boat ramp from which he departed.

Police and the Coast Guard resumed a search Wednesday after ending the search Tuesday night.

His son says Dustin frequently takes his kayak to fish on the river.
