GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) - Authorities are looking for a Mississippi man who hasn’t been seen since he went kayaking in the Gulf of Mexico on the Alabama coast.

Gulf Shores police say 24-year-old John Switzer of Starkville, Mississippi, hasn’t been heard from since he told relatives he was fishing on his kayak about 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

A police statement says Switzer was vacationing in Gulf Shores at the time, and his family is concerned for his safety.

WKRG-TV (https://bit.ly/1yfsK8H ) reports the search for Switzer has included two boats and a helicopter. The man sent relatives a photo that appeared to be taken from the water looking at the beach before he went missing.
