Coast Guard searching for missing kayakers in Lake Ontario

CLEVELAND — The Coast Guard is searching for three kayakers in Lake Ontario Monday evening after they were reported overdue from a trip.

There are no videos or images associated with this case.

At around 6:30 p.m., watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Buffalo, New York, received a report of three missing kayakers in Lake Ontario. A family member passed that three males in green, red, and blue kayaks had departed Golden Hill State Park and were last seen paddling offshore into the lake.

The men were reported to have been wearing life jackets and had left their phones in their vehicle at the park.

Crews from Station Niagara and Station Rochester were launched and are searching. The Canadian Coast Guard Ship Corporal Teather C.V. is en route to the scene to assist in the search. 

The Alcott Fire and Police Departments have established a command post at the park. 

Search aircraft are standing by to assist in the search as soon as weather conditions allow. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Coast Guard Sector Buffalo Command Center at 716.843.9527 or 911.
