Missing Wivenhoe kayaker found
3rd March 2011


 A MISSING 32-year-old man and his dog have just been found after they failed to return from a kayaking trip to Wivenhoe Dam yesterday.

The man and his dog went out on the dam on a four-metre kayak and had not been heard from since around 2pm. An initial search by the family failed to find the man.

Police co-ordinated a search at first light today with assistance from water police, SES staff, volunteers marine vessels and a rescue 500 chopper.

The man was spotted by the chopper and both he and his dog are safe and well.

Good result.
I assume when the storms rolled through he found a lee shore and it was probably to dark to head home by the time they had passed.

SEQ Water gunna be happy about the dog!
