RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) - Officials in south-central Wyoming say a 25-year-old man is missing and presumed drowned after a weekend kayaking accident.

The Carbon County sheriff’s office says Michael Proberts of Wamsutta traveled to Seminoe Reservoir on Saturday morning to go kayaking. He was reported missing at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday after he failed to return home.

Searchers spotted his kayak, paddle, life vest and ball cap near a cove at daybreak Sunday, but were unable to find Proberts. Searches with an underwater remote operated vehicle and with sonar have been unsuccessful in locating Proberts.

Undersheriff Archie Roybal tells the Rawlins Times (bit.ly/2pdFdOB ) that no decisions have been made about how long the search will continue.
