EUDORA, Kansas (AP) Searchers plan to continue looking in the
Kansas River Monday morning where a man has been missing since his
canoe flipped over during a weekend outing with friends.
Authorities say 26-year-old Shaun Shaw of De Soto, Kan., was canoeing with two friends near Eudora Saturday when his canoe overturned at around 6 p.m. His companions ran to a nearby home to summon help.
By Sunday afternoon, Douglas County sheriff's deputies said it appeared the operation had become a recovery instead of a rescue.
Searchers walked the shoreline while rescuers in helicopters and boats also tried to find the canoeist.
Shaw disappeared in eight to 10 feet of water about 1 mile from the Johnson and Leavenworth county lines.
