FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Coast Guard crews are searching for a missing kayaker whose empty craft was last seen Saturday morning off southwest Florida.

Coast Guard officials were alerted by local deputies Saturday morning that 29-year-old Justin Furman had gone missing after camping at Punta Rassa with a group of friends. He left the group Friday night to kayak and fish along the beach.

Friends said he didn’t have a life jacket, cell phone or emergency equipment in the kayak.
