OTTAWA -- The body of a missing Bonnechere Valley Township man has been recovered from Lake Clear, southwest of Eganville.

Joseph Palluq was reported missing last Saturday after his family noticed he hadn’t returned from a kayaking trip at his cottage on Buelow Road Friday night.

On Tuesday, the OPP Underway Search and Recovery Unit recovered the body of the 54-year-old near the area where his kayak was discovered overturned.

The OPP says Palluq was not wearing a personal floatation device while kayaking.
