GRAND ISLE, Vt. (AP) -Vermont State Police say the body of a missing canoeist has been pulled from Lake Champlain.

He was identified as Bryan Kapschull, 30, of Grand Isle.

The canoe he was in overturned just after midnight Sunday about 150 yards off Grand Isle, and the other occupant swam to shore and summoned help, according to Lt. Robert Evans. Neither was wearing a life jacket.

Searchers from the Vermont State Police, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Border Patrol searched for Kapschull, whose body was eventually found in 25-foot deep waters.

The surviving canoeist was identified as Gian Luca Fremiotti, 27, of Pennsylvania.
