A canoeist was found dead Wednesday in Lake Anna, Louisa County police say.

The 63-year-old victim, who had health issues, went canoeing Wednesday afternoon. When he didn't return home or respond to phone calls his wife began searching for him, said Maj. Donald Lowe of the Louisa County's Sheriff's Office.

The woman found her husband's body about 7:10 p.m. in the water near the boat docks in the Hickory Landing subdivision, Lowe said.

The man had a head injury, Lowe said, but foul play is not suspected.
