Coast Guard finds missing kayaker

GALVESTON (KTRK) -- The search for a missing Galveston kayaker comes to an end. The Coast Guard located the kayaker off Sunny Beach in Galveston.

A Coast Guard aircrew, Galveston police and Galveston Island Beach Patrol collaborated to track down a kayaker reported missing Sunday afternoon.

The kayaker, described as a Hispanic male, was found in stable condition and transported to a local hospital. He was located 2 miles offshore in strong winds and 63 degree water temperature.

"There's a pretty good chance he would've been hypothermic had he not been located," the Coast Guard Public Affairs officer said. null
