Search underway for missing Deer Creek Reservoir kayaker

A search and rescue team was looking for a kayaker who was reported missing at Deer Creek Reservoir on Saturday.

The 32-year-old man was on the water with a woman about 3:30 p.m., when the kayak flipped, Sgt. Drew Patterson of Utah State Parks told KUTV.

The man was not wearing a life jacket. His female companion was wearing one and was able to get to shore and call for help, Patterson said.

The Utah Highway Patrol’s dive team was enroute to the reservoir to assist in the search, UHP Sgt. Jalaine Hawkes said.

The Salt Lake Tribune will update this story as more information becomes available.
