Authorities are searching for a 47-year-old man who disappeared after leaving home to go kayaking on southeastern Michigan’s Clinton River.
Police in Macomb County’s Shelby Township said that Oliver W. Dixon III parked his vehicle at the River Bends Park Boat Launch on Thursday. It’s about 20 miles north of Detroit.
Police say Dixon planned to kayak to Heritage Park in Utica but hasn’t been seen since.
So far, police say searchers haven’t found any signs of Dixon or his blue and white kayak. They say he’s 6-feet and 190 pounds with gray hair and a goatee and was wearing a red life jacket and black shorts.
