A woman's body was found Saturday morning as members of the U.S. Coast Guard and local police searched for two people in Cape Cod near Provincetown, officials said.

Carol Madru, 50, was last been seen in a red kayak in the Provincetown area. A body matching her description was found on the shore in North Truro about 6:30 a.m., Coast Guard officials said.

Officials were also searching for Marc-Oliver Czarnecki, a 51-year-old who was reported to be with Madru Friday night. Crews searched 180 square miles for 16 hours before suspending its search for Czarnecki shortly after 3:30 p.m. Saturday, pending any new information.

It wasn't immediately clear if Czarnecki had been kayaking with Madru.

Anyone with information is asked to call officials at 508-457-3211.
