The Coast Guard search for a possible missing kayaker off Maui was suspended today.

The search began after an abandoned kayak was found off La Perouse Bay, Maui, about 11 a.m., Tuesday.

A 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew from Station Maui, an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew from Air Station Barbers Point and a Jet Ski from Ocean Safety searched the area for a possible kayaker in distress.

"The Coast Guard highly recommends mariners use Paddle Smart stickers and mark their personal watercraft with their contact information," said Chief Petty Officer Jerrod Sneller, operations unit controller at Sector Honolulu Command Center. "This will reduce the number of man hours spent searching for individuals not in distress and it will allow valuable resources to be ready for actual search and rescue cases."
