The Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a kayak abandoned in Tongue River Canyon Wednesday night. Sheridan County Search and Rescue did begin a search for anyone associated with the watercraft at around 8 Wednesday evening.
Lieutenant Mark Conrad with the Sheriff’s Office says there have been no missing person reports nor has anyone been able to confirm the name of the boat’s owner.
Unconfirmed reports recently placed a similar boat, in Sheridan, in the possession of two men with a red pick-up truck that may have out of state license plates.
The incident is being treated as a “found property” case and search efforts were called off around noon Thursday. The boat is a yellow Dagger Bayou kayak and anyone who may know the owner is encouraged to call the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office at 672-3455.
