Emergency crews perform 'precautionary search' after kayak found unattended

Posted: Updated:

A kayaker was found alive in Lompoc after emergency crews performed a 'precautionary search' near Spooners Cove in Montana De Oro Park Saturday afternoon.

The man told officials his kayak capsized and a friend he was fishing with picked him up to bring him home safely.

Authorities say the man thought his kayak had sunk, but it ended up washing ashore where a hiker found it.

Officials say they searched the land and water after a woman reported an unattended kayak around 5:30 p.m.

California Highway Patrol, State Parks, Coast Guard and CAL FIRE and the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office all assisted in the search.
