Coast Guard looking for owner of abandoned, drifting kayak

BOSTON (D1 Public Affairs) – Coast Guard Sector Boston is looking for the owner of a yellow kayak that was reported abandoned, overturned and drifting out of Gloucester Harbor in Gloucester, Mass., about 5 p.m., today.

Two 25-foot response boats from Station Gloucester and a Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Cape Cod, Mass., searched the area for the owner of the kayak but didn’t find anything.

The kayak is described as a yellow, one-person kayak and had one paddle next to it.

Anyone with information on the kayak is asked to call the Sector Boston command center at (617) 223-3201.

The Coast Guard urges owners of small, unregistered vessels to put their contact information on their vessels, so that if the vessel is reported adrift, responders know who to search for and where to begin searching.
