    The body of a 40-year-old kayaker who disappeared more than a week ago in Lake Ronkonkoma was recovered Saturday, police on Long Island said.

    The body of Kevin Conley, of Sound Beach, was recovered around noon, according to authorities.

    Divers searched fruitlessly for days after Conley went missing Aug. 14 in the mid-afternoon.

    Witnesses reported seeing the man yelling for help before he slipped under the water.
