Missing Kayaker Found Safe and Sound
A missing kayaker has been found, safe and sound, after a 14-hour search. 30-year-old Matt Grabowski was reported missing Thursday after he failed to make a check-in call during his trip to Isle Au Haut.
Grabowski was on a several day kayaking and camping trip around Isle Au Haut in a 14-foot yellow kayak. The 30-year-old made a check-in phone call Wednesday night from Burnt Island, where he was camping. He left Hatch Cove, Stonington on Tuesday and was supposed to return there today.
A Coast Guard helicopter located Grabowski paddling between Stinson Neck and Sheep Island just after 1 this afternoon. He told searchers his cellphone had died and his VHF radio wasn’t working.
Grabowski is believed to be from Massachusetts.
