RUMSON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities were searching Friday for a kayaker who went missing while fishing with a friend on a river in central New Jersey.

The Coast Guard said the 61-year-old man and his friend were in the kayak when they fell out into the Navesink River. The other man was able to swim to shore, but the missing man disappeared a short time later.

The kayak the men were in later washed up on the shore in Rumson, authorities said. The names of the men have not been released.

The search was being conducted by the Coast Guard and state police crews, who were using boats and helicopters.
