    MACON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in Georgia say the body of a man who frequently canoes has been pulled from Lake Sinclair.

    Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills tells news outlets that 53-year-old Robert Steven Orr was recovered from the water Tuesday morning.

    Witnesses tell authorities that Orr was last seen around 3:30 p.m. Monday at Oconee Springs Park. They say he was intoxicated and disorderly. The sheriff's office later found his empty canoe, sunglasses and a cooler of mostly empty beer cans.

    The man's body surfaced not far from where his personal effects were found. Sills believes alcohol was a factor in the possible drowning.
