Body Of Missing Kayaker Found

HOLTWOOD, Pa. (AP) – Officials say a body found in the Susquehanna River is that of a central Pennsylvania man who disappeared while kayaking with a friend in late January.

Lancaster County Coroner Stephen Diamantoni says the body of 24-year-old Nicholas Herr was found on the York County side of the river south of Holtwood on Sunday.

The New Providence man disappeared Jan. 28 during a nighttime outing with a friend.

Officials say Herr and his friend both ended up out of their kayaks after encountering rough waters. The friend made it to shore and a nearby home but rescuers couldn’t find Herr.
