Police have recovered the body of the second kayaker who went missing last weekend in Caledon.

Ontario Provicinal Police officers pulled Zach Sutherland's body from the Credit River, about 60 kilometres northwest of Toronto, after a two-day search involving divers and other specialized units.

Sutherland, 21, was kayaking with his girlfriend, Kaya Firth, on Sunday afternoon when the pair ran into trouble.

Firth's body was recovered on Sunday, hours after police were called to the river where two empty kayaks were spotted stuck in some ice in the middle of the river.

The pair were said to be experienced paddlers and were both students at the University of Guelph.

"Water can be as dangerous as it is beautiful," the OPP said in a news release.

"It is everyone's responsibility to be aware of the dangers whenever you are in, around, or on the water."
