Teen Missing After Attempting To Find Missing Kayaker

RICHLAND, Wash -  The search for a missing kayaker turns into a nightmare.

Now another person is missing in the Yakima River, this time it's a teenage boy.

Rescue crews say the teen was in the river with some friends near Twin Bridges Road West of Richland.

He was not wearing a life jacket and he was swept away by the current.

Family members of Gary Kirk, the kayaker who went missing this weekend, say the teenage boy is a friend of the family and was searching for Gary's body.

A massive search for the teenager lasted into the night, but was called off due to poor visibility as the sun went down.

Gary Kirk went missing after he and a friend capsized while attempting to drift over the Wanawish Dam Saturday afternoon.

Search efforts for both Kirk and the teenager will resume tomorrow.
