Missing Dinkey Creek kayaker presumed drowned

FRESNO, Calif.

The man, who is said to be in his 30's, was first reported missing Tuesday night in a remote area between Dinkey Creek and Big Creek in Eastern Fresno County. Five extreme kayakers were on the river when they noticed the man had disappeared.

Search and rescue teams returned to the area Wednesday morning. But they say because of the high water levels and swift current, they will have to wait until the water recedes to do a more thorough search.
