      Kayaking dad, daughter drowned

      Viola and Jonathan Francis

      The Erie County Coroner says a father and daughter who went missing while kayaking on Lake Erie died from drowning.

      The bodies of 30-year-old Jonathan Francis and 12-year-old Viola Francis were pulled from the lake last week.

      They had been missing since early April when they went out on a kayaking trip on Sandusky Bay but never returned.

      They did not have life jackets on.
