POLICE believe a man’s body found on the Central Coast early on Thursday may be a kayaker missing overnight.
Tuggerah Lakes police had been searching for the man, 44, since he was last seen on Wednesday afternoon.
A body was recovered in Tuggerah Lake near Berkeley Vale about 9.30am.
Police said they also found a red kayak.
“While formal identification is yet to take place, officers believe it to be the missing kayaker,” police said in a statement.
A brief will be prepared for the coroner.
Separately, the Westpac rescue helicopter was sent to Nelson Bay about 11am after a man in his 60s reportedly fell from a ladder.
