Dover Coastguard is appealing for information after an empty
kayak was found drifting upturned underneath Deal pier last
Lifeboat crews from Walmer joined Coastguard rescue services
from Deal and Langdon just after 9pm.
The light blue kayak, which has a foot-long black and yellow
pattern, was last seen by fishermen at sunset with a person
The search was called off at 11.52pm with no reports of anyone
Dover Coastguards' spokesman Julia Gosling believes its
owner could have forgotten to secure the craft.
She said: "We ask that anyone using a canoe or kayak label their
equipment and let people know where they are going and give a rough
time when they are expected back."
Anyone with information is asked to call the Coastguard
on 01304 210008.
