HURON COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

The search has ended for a kayaker who went missing over the weekend after his body was found Tuesday morning.

Curtis Herbon, 22, was on the water with Robert Lapensee, 20, when the two men apparently swapped their separate kayaks causing them to fall into the water.

According to a spokesperson with the Huron County Sheriff's Office, neither men were wearing a life jacket at the time, but Lapensee was able to swim to shore and flag down someone for help on Lighthouse Road about 4:15 p.m. Saturday.

Herbon's body was recovered at 6:40 a.m. on July 18 in less than five feet of water, about an eighth of a mile offshore, just south of Light House County Park.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Wednesday morning.
