Coast Guard Searching for Missing Kayaker Along Maine Coast

Baruch Roberts, 79, was last seen Sunday near Friendship, Maine

The Coast Guard is searching for a missing man whose empty kayak was found in Maine's Muscongus Bay.

Officials say 79-year-old Baruch Roberts, of Thomaston, was last seen Sunday near Friendship. His empty kayak was found Monday near Allen Island.

A small boat from the Boothbay Harbor Coast Guard station, a 110-foot cutter and a helicopter from Cape Cod searched through the night.

The Coast Guard continued to search Tuesday morning. Allen Island is about halfway between St. George in Knox County and Monhegan Island.
