Search for Kayaker Near Snow Hill Ends Well

A search for a missing kayaker near Snow Hill had a happy ending Saturday morning. Worcester Central was called around 8:30 Friday night about a vehicle parked along Red House Road that had an empty kayak rack and the caller was worried about the kayaker’s safety since it was long after sunset. Multiple agencies searched the area with no sign of the kayaker and there no family member could be reached at the address for the vehicle owner. The search was suspended until morning. The kayaker was located – he’d planned an overnight stay in a tent that he brought with him!

Multiple agencies were involved in the search:

• Worcester County Sheriff’s Office
• Worcester County Emergency Services
• Natural Resource Police
• Maryland State Police – Aviation
• Snow Hill Volunteer Fire Company
• Pocomoke City Volunteer Fire Company
