Police search for missing kayaker

RONKONKOMA - Suffolk County Police are investigating an incident in which a kayaker was reported missing in Ronkonkoma this afternoon.

Witnesses called 911 after they observed a distressed kayaker in Lake Ronkonkoma, located off of Lake Shore Drive, at approximately 3:30 p.m.  The man was calling for help and several good Samaritans attempted to help but they lost sight of him. 

Officers from the Suffolk County Marine Bureau, Emergency Service Section, Aviation Section and Parks Police responded to the scene, along with members of numerous fire departments.  A search was conducted and was suspended hours later due to darkness. 

The search will resume in the morning.
