The body of a missing man has been found in Lake Ontario, say Toronto police.

David Ramphalie, 38, was last seen on Friday morning in the Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue East area. Police believed he then headed to the lake to ride in a small, 10-foot boat powered by a trolling motor.

Const. Craig Brister confirmed both Ramphalie's body and his boat were found on Sunday afternoon after a search involving Toronto police and other emergency crews, including the U.S. Coast Guard.
