A kayaker who died on Lake Sutherland Saturday was identified today as a 57-year-old Ramona man.
Leonard Kevin Jones' body was recovered from the lake by San Diego Lifeguard divers Sunday morning, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.
A city worker noticed an upside down kayak at Lake Sutherland Dam just after 1:30 p.m. Saturday, San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Christine Robbins said.
The city worker told authorities the man, who frequently fishes at the lake, had a heart condition, another sheriff's official said.
Robbins said deputies checked the shoreline and asked for a helicopter to help in the search. A search-and-rescue team was unable to find Jones before dark, and the search was resumed Sunday.
Jones was declared dead at 9:36 a.m. Sunday, according to the M.E.'s Office. An autopsy is pending.
Lake Sutherland, owned by the city, is about 45 miles northeast of downtown San Diego.
