One of the great things about this group is safety first.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Coast Guard crews are searching for a missing kayaker whose empty craft was last seen Saturday morning off southwest Florida.

Coast Guard officials were alerted by local deputies Saturday morning that 29-year-old Justin Furman had gone missing after camping at Punta Rassa with a group of friends.

He left the group Friday night to kayak and fish along the beach.

Friends said he didn't have a life jacket, cell phone or emergency equipment in the kayak.

The News-Press reports his kayak was found empty Saturday morning.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.  ~John Buchan

I haven't seen anything that definitively shows he dead.
Keeping my fingers crossed, even though he did everything wrong.


ooops. RIP
