Divers find male body in Lake Sutherland Dam in Ramona

RAMONA - Search and rescue crews found a male body that could be the missing 58-year-old man whose kayak was found floating upside down in Lake Sutherland Dam in Ramona.

The empty kayak was spotted around 1:30 p.m. Saturday. 

San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Christine Robbins says the man was fishing and was well-known to employees at the lake because he came to kayak and fish there often.

According to authorities, the search was suspended Saturday afternoon due to storm weather and poor visibility for divers.

It is unknown at this time if weather played a role in the man's death or whether he was wearing a life jacket.

His name has not been released at this time.
