Missing Kayaker near Grand Isle.
A charter boat captain encountered a kayak fisherman in a red sit-on-top several miles from shore yesterday. The captain spoke with the man who identified himself as 'Eric' and asked if the man needed any assistance. 'Eric' reportedly told the captain this was his second trip in the kayak. The man assured the captain he was doing fine and they parted ways.
Reports now are that the man's truck is still parked at Bridgeside and that a coworker reported
that he did not show up for work.
If you have any info concerning 'Eric' please call the USCG Station at Grand Isle @ (985) 787-2136
