The body of a Hutchinson man was recovered from Cheney Lake after family members reported him missing Sunday night.

Searchers were looking for 31-year-old Sheldon Martin, who went to the lake Sunday for canoeing activity. When he didn't return home, his family went looking for him and found his vehicle. His body was found around 4 a.m. Monday.   

A statement from the Reno County Sheriff's Department said Martin was still wearing his life jacket when he was found.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death. No foul play is suspected.
