A body was found Friday morning in the Cy-Fair area retention pond where a kayaker went missing last weekend.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office says the body was recovered, but could not confirm as to whether it is in fact Ryan Smith. The 32-year-old's kayak was discovered Saturday afternoon on the shore of the pond where he's been known to go fishing. His pickup truck and cell phone were located nearby.

Dive teams dragged part of the lake and used sonar over the weekend. Dogs and a Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter were also used in the search.

The search was called off on Monday.
