After nearly three weeks
of searching, the recovery effort for a father and daughter who went missing
while kayaking is over.
Two bodies believed to be
12-year-old Viola Francis and her father Jonathon were found Friday.
Those close to the family

a happy girl. She always had a smile on her face and she loved to be outdoors.

"He was a good dad,"
Snyder said. "He always took Viola out to do stuff – whether it be kayaking or
fishing or…he did a lot of stuff with her, he was a good dad. He was a good
The bodies found are
believed to be those of Jonathon and Viola, but an official identification will
come after autopsies are performed.
A memorial fund has been
set up for Viola. Those wishing to donate can do so at any Fifth Third bank.
