The Coast Guard is seeking the public's help in identifying the owner of a yellow kayak found a mile off Mokolea Rock, near Kailua, Sunday morning.

A good Samaritan found the kayak without a leash, seats and partially submerged. The kayak is 12-feet long and accommodates two passengers. 

"The Coast Guard encourages owners who lose their watercraft to report it to the Coast Guard with a good description so that we can eliminate any unnecessary searches," said Lt. j.g Christa Funk, a command duty officer at the Coast Guard Sector Honolulu Command Center. "We appreciate the support of good Samaritans in the area recovering and reporting such craft."

Anyone with information that may help identify the owner of the kayak is asked to contact the Coast Guard Sector Honolulu Command Center at 808-842-2600.
