Search Suspended for Possible Person in the Water near Mission Bay

SAN DIEGO – The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search for a possible person in the water near Mission Bay at 7:26 Friday morning.

At about 11:00 Thursday morning the Mission Bay Lifeguards notified the Coast Guard that a Good Samaritan had pulled an unmanned, overturned kayak out of the water in Mission Bay.

The Coast Guard searched the waters from Mission Bay to Point Loma for more than 11 hours for anyone who may have been inside the kayak.

The kayak is a red Malabu, 12-foot, single person kayak and had fishing gear inside.

The Coast Guard would like to remind all mariners to please file a float plan letting a friend or family member know you are going on the water, where you plan on being and when you plan to return. It is also important to label your recreational equipment as you would all of your other marine equipment in the event that something might happen.

If anyone has any information, please contact the U.S. Coast Guard at 691.278.7031.
