DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard says it has called off the search for a possible person in the water off the Alabama coast.

Authorities say the search has been focused near Dauphin Island, after a report of an empty green kayak with personal effects was called in.

The Coast Guard says it later confirmed that the owner of the kayaker was safe and had lost his kayak.

A boat from Dauphin Island and a helicopter from New Orleans had been launched to conduct a search before authorities determined the kayaker was safe.
