Search Suspended For Kayaker Missing On North Carolina Coast

Officials have suspended the search for a kayaker who disappeared while fishing on the North Carolina coast, and a reward is being offered to anyone who finds him. The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission announced on Wednesday that the agency had suspended its search for 26-year-old Alexander Rush of Kill Devil Hills. On Thursday, the commission announced that a local family was offering a $1,000 reward for anyone who finds Rush, who was fishing near the Old Manns Harbor Bridge in Dare County around 7 p.m. Saturday. According to the commission, Rush's wife called 911 on Sunday when he didn’t come home.
