PLYMOUTH (CBS) – An empty kayak led to the search for a possible missing person off the coast of Plymouth, but the Coast Guard has called off their search.

A fisherman spotted the overturned unmarked 10-foot lime green kayak with a paddle off Duxbury Pier Light around 4 a.m. Monday.

The Coast Guard was called and they launched a boat crew and a helicopter to start a search. The Duxbury and Plymouth harbormasters are also searching with the Plymouth Fire Department.

They said they searched a 29-square-mile area for four hours, but did not find anyone, and called the search off.
