Police continue search for missing Washington kayaker

LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — Washington state officials are searching for a kayaker who fell into a river on Sunday in Woodland near the border with Oregon. Police say Mark A. Bunker Jr. fell out of his kayak after 6:30 p.m. on Sunday and has not resurfaced. Police say the 35-year-old had been using his kayak to fish about 300 yards from shore and fell from the kayak as he dropped his line. Cowlitz County sheriff’s deputies responded with a boat, diver and drone to search for Bunker, but were unable to locate him. Officials are now considering the rescue effort to be a recovery mission.
