Search underway for missing kayaker

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters and Harris County Marine division divers are searching a northwest Harris County retention pond for a kayaker that went missing Saturday afternoon.

Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department spokesperson Robert Rasa says firefighters received a distress call around 2:30 p.m. 

Firefighters arrived on scene finding the kayak capsized in the middle of the pond.

Two search boats and a DPS helicopter are assisting in the search.

According to Rasa, the pond is an old sand pit that was donated to the county and is part of a park that is under construction.
