Missing kayaker feared dead
WHITE COUNTY, Ill. - A kayaker making his way down the Little Wabash River in White County, Illinois on Saturday is feared dead.
WHITE COUNTY, Ill. - Illinois Department of Natural Resources officers are conducting a search and recovery mission on the Little Wabash River.
IDNR Captain Jerry Hiller says 55 year-old Wilfred Nobles of Mt. Vernon, Indiana was kayaking with two friends around 12:30 Saturday afternoon when the current took him downstream.
Captain Hiller says Nobles may be caught up in a log jam. Hiller says the current is too strong for any divers to be in the water, but IDNR officers are on boats conducting the recovery.
