Help sought to find owner of red kayak

The U.S. Coast Guard is seeking help in identifying the owner of a red kayak found adrift Saturday a mile and a half south of Olowalu Beach. A crew aboard a 45-foot boat from Coast Guard Station Maui searched the area offshore while Maui firefighters conducted a search onshore, the Coast Guard reported. Mariners have been alerted to keep a sharp lookout for signs of anyone in distress.

The crew of the Lahaina Princess reported the discovery of the unmanned kayak at 7:47 a.m. Saturday. The red kayak was found partially submerged and has the word Tamarack 120 on the side, the Coast Guard said.

There were no reports of anyone missing in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call (808) 842-2600.
