Search For Missing Kayaker In Escambia County

Posted: Updated:

The Escambia County Sheriff's Office is attempting to locate James Joseph Kane III.

Kane went kayaking at Lake Frederick Beach near NAS Pensacola on 5/13/2013, and has been missing since then.

He was accompanied by his dog, Fannie. They were traveling in a 6-foot yellow Riptide brand kayak with a black & silver Pelican brand kayak paddle.

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.


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 (one similar is pictured) should contact the Escambia County Sheriff's Office at 436-9620 or 436-9199.
