HONOLULU — The Coast Guard is seeking the public’s help in identifying the owner of a kayak adrift one mile offshore Kahakuloa, Maui, Friday.
The kayak is red and appears to be new. No other descriptive information is available.
Anyone with information that may help identify the owner of the kayak is asked to contact the Coast Guard Sector Honolulu Command Center at 808-842-2600.
Watchstanders at the Sector Honolulu Command Center received a report at 2:45 p.m. from personnel at Blue Hawaii Helicopters who located the adrift kayak.
“The Coast Guard encourages owners who lose their water craft to report it to the Coast Guard with a good description so that we can eliminate any unnecessary searches,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Perlita Villasenor, an operations specialist at the Coast Guard Sector Honolulu Command Center.
A high surf warning remains in effect for north facing shores of the main Hawaiian Islands throughout the weekend. Mariners and residents are reminded to secure small vessels and personal recreation gear in coastal areas. Large surf and significant shore break, along with dangerous currents, pose a significant danger to beachgoers, swimmers, bodyboarders and surfers.
No images related to the case are available.
