Crews are searching for a lost kayaker on the Ocoee Number Three Lake in the Tumbling Creek area.
Those involved include TWRA law enforcement officers, along with Polk County Fire and Rescue, Polk County EMA, Polk County Sheriff’s Department, State Parks Crews and U. S. Forest Service Law Enforcement.
The kayaker, a 68-year-old man from Polk County, was reported missing Sunday around 10 a.m.
Search crews recovered a kayak, life jacket and a creel bucket, containing fish. The search was called off at dark due to unsafe conditions. Crews resumed the search on Monday morning at sunrise.
Crews are using a side scanner to search in water depths of nearly 25 feet.
