NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 17/08/2016

A man kayaking on the Waikato River has gone missing after yelling for help.

Police say they were alerted just after 5pm on Wednesday to a person calling out while floating down the river in a blue-and-white kayak.

A search began by boat and the kayak was located on the water, but the man, who was not thought to be wearing a life jacket, is yet to be found.

Police are continuing to search the immediate area, but say there is a possibility the man could have rescued himself from the river.

He was described as wearing a black T-shirt and black shorts and as being aged in his 20s.
