Search for man after empty kayak found in river

PORTLAND, Ore. – Rescue crews searched for a missing person in the Columbia River after a red kayak was found adrift near the Big Eddy Marina in Portland.

Rescuers said they were looking for a man in the water, but the river’s current was too dangerous for divers.

Crews tried to use an underwater camera, but the choppy conditions hampered visibility.
