A woman's body has been recovered and a man is still missing after the two went missing while kayaking in the Credit River in Caledon in southern Ontario.

Police and emergency crews responded to a call at about 2:50 p.m. ET Sunday after two empty kayaks were spotted stuck in the ice in the middle of the river near Winston Churchill Boulevard and King Street. 

The municipality of Caledon is located about 60 kilometres northwest of Toronto.  

Soon after, crews pulled the woman's body from the river.
