SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard said that a kayaker from Florida who went missing off Puerto Rico’s west coast was found Friday on a nearby, uninhabited island.

The agency said 25-year-old Josh Kaufman was spotted on a cliff on Desecheo island, which lies between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Officials said he had last been seen early Thursday afternoon after he took off in a green kayak from the popular tourist town of Rincon. Kaufman was not wearing a life jacket.

Coast Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad said Kaufman was found in good condition.

Authorities said they did not have a hometown for him.
