A 45-year-old kayaker was pronounced dead Tuesday after he was found near Orchard Beach in New York, the U.S. Coast Guard confirmed. Officials searched for Laurence Broderick, who was reportedly traveling from Hempstead Harbor to Mamaroneck in New York on Monday night, after receiving a report early Tuesday morning.  

"It is with sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Broderick that we acknowledge the unfortunate news of his loss – which occurred while he was kayaking near the Long Island Sound," Coast Guard captain Zeita Merchant said in a statement. 

Broderick left from Hempstead Harbor at approximately 9:00 p.m. Monday and was reported overdue on Tuesday, officials said. His kayak and cell phone were discovered later Tuesday morning on Glen Island Beach. At around 2:00 p.m., a rescue swimmer found Broderick's body in the water. Broderick was then transferred to Westchester Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. 

Winds at the start of the search were upward of around 17 miles per hour with three to four foot waves in the sea, the Coast Guard said. 

"Today's events were truly tragic in nature, and we continue to urge all recreational craft users in the area to heed weather and condition warnings as they consider whether or not to go out on the water," Merchant said. 

Broderick's cause of death has not yet been determined.
