CHARLESTOWN, R.I. (AP) — Authorities in Rhode Island say U.S. Coast Guard and Charlestown Marine Rescue crews found no boaters after an overturned kayak was discovered.
Charlestown Police Rescue Division Deputy Chief Andrew Kettle says a two-hour-long search was called off Friday after no one was found in the water and no reports of missing or overdue boaters were received.
Rescue units had arrived at the scene just before 5 p.m. and found an overturned and partially submerged kayak.
The Charlestown Harbormaster brought the kayak ashore. State Department of Environmental Management Police were notified.
