Maine authorities say they've found the body of a missing Massachusetts man whose kayak capsized in the middle of a river in Orono.

The discovery came Wednesday morning as game wardens searched for Mohammed Jamal, who was in a kayak with his 7-year-old niece when it turned over in the Stillwater River on Tuesday evening.

The girl was wearing a lifejacket and survived, but officials say Jamal, a 37 year old from Malden, Massachusetts, was not wearing one.
