Vandenberg leading search for missing kayaker

Vandenberg Air Force Base is now leading the search for a missing kayaker who disappeared Saturday afternoon near Gaviota.

Both the Coast Guard and Santa Barbara County Search and Rescue teams suspended their searches last night for 32-year -old Sean Fleming. Vandenberg hot shots are conducting ground searches while its water rescue teams scour the coastline. Eight local city and county fire departments are also assisting with the search efforts. Searchers remain hopeful due to Fleming's 12 years of experience as a Vandenberg water rescue team leader, but know the odds are against them. Crews plan to stop at sunset and continue searching tomorrow.
