Coast Guard Locates One of Two Missing Kayakers

HONOLULU (KHNL) -  Coast Guard rescue helicopter crew located one of the missing kayakers in his kayak 25 miles west of Kaumalapau Harbor Monday morning.   He was flown to Kahului Airport where Maui emergency medical technicians waited.  He was reported in good condition with slight hypothermia.

Rescue crew continues to search for the second kayaker.  A kayak was found two miles south of where the first kayaker was spotted.

The Coast Guard plans to search throughout the night.

The Fire's Department's Air One helicopter was pulled from the search operations due to off shore distance of the ocean.
