Body Of Missing Kayaker Recovered

The search has ended for a missing kayaker on the Neuse River near Goldsboro.  According to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, the body of 34-year-old Derrick Wooten has been found in the area near where he went missing Saturday.  Wooten and another individual were kayaking along the river when Wooten apparently started to struggle.  He went into the water and the other person went in after him, but was unable to pull Wooten to the surface.  The Goldsboro Fire Department Water Rescue Team, Arr-Mac Water Response, NC Wildlife, and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office Dive team all assisted in the search for Wooten over the weekend.
