Lexington man goes missing after being swept from kayak in North Carolina

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Emergency crews are searching for a Lexington man who went missing while kayaking in North Carolina.

Emergency management leaders in Haywood County, near Asheville, say the man was with a group of seven people Thursday, when he was swept out of his kayak.

Rescue crews later found the kayak, and some other equipment, but no sign of the man.

The man's name has not been released, because emergency crews are still trying to contact his family.

Emergency crews say heavy rain and high water have been slowing down their search efforts.
