PENSACOLA, Fla. (WALA) - Escambia County Sheriff's Office Investigators are attempting to locate James Joseph Kane III. Officials said Kane went kayaking at Lake Frederick Beach near NAS Pensacola on Monday, May 13, and has been missing since.
Deputies said he was accompanied by his dog, Fannie. They said Kane was traveling in a 6-foot yellow Riptide brand kayak with a black & silver Pelican brand kayak paddle. According to officials, Kane was also carrying a camouflage "dry bag" containing his wallet and cell phone.
He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, dark red ski vest type life jacket, light green shorts with patterns, black close rim sunglasses, brown flip flops and an olive green Columbia broad rim hat.
Deputies said Kane, his dog, the kayak, and all of his possessions are still missing at this time. Anyone having any information concerning Kane or anyone who might have seen his kayak should contact the Escambia County Sheriff's Office at 850-436-9620 or 850-436-9199.
They also said a false Craigslist advertisement is needlessly diverting attention from search efforts in regards to missing Kayaker James Joseph Kane.
Within hours of its posting officers made attempts to contact the poster. They continued their investigation with the assistance of Craigslist and were able to determine that the advertisement was posted by someone using the information of a 19 year old in another state.
Officers have contacted this person and have determined the advertisement to be false.
If anyone has any information over the busy Memorial Day weekend they are asked to contact the Sheriff's Office immediately at (850) 436-9620.
