Thousands of Farrington High School students, parents and alumni packed the school’s front lawn Monday evening to bid an emotional farewell to senior football player Dayne Ortiz, 18, who disappeared after his kayak capsized in waters off Moku-leia on Saturday.

Rescue personnel from the Coast Guard, Honolulu Fire Department, city Ocean Safety division and state Department of Land and Natural Resources joined dozens of volunteers in a massive but so far fruitless effort to locate Ortiz.

Ortiz’s empty kayak was found washed ashore Saturday evening. On Monday morning, divers recovered two pieces of board shorts that Ortiz’s family confirmed belonged to him.

The Coast Guard called off its search Sunday evening. HFD personnel are expected to resume their search efforts at first light Monday.
