A kayaker who had been enjoying Sunday afternoon on Carter Lake in Colorado with his dog, remains missing according to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.

“On Sunday, April 11, 2021 at approximately 2:03pm, a Larimer County Natural Resources Ranger discovered an overturned kayak at Carter Lake. Rangers took a boat on the water and located a dog wearing a floatation device that was uninjured. The Larimer County Dive Rescue Team, Loveland Fire Dive Rescue Team, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Services, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Larimer County Natural Resources, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Deputies, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Drone Team, Loveland Fire Rescue Authority and Berthoud Fire Protection District responded to the area to search for the kayaker, believed to be a 31-year-old male from Loveland.”

Rangers launched a boat and found an uninjured dog wearing a flotation device in the water, but there has been no sign of the kayaker. The lake has remained closed since Monday. It was unknown if the man, who has not been identified, had been wearing a flotation vest, however the lake’s water temperature is in the 40s.

After four days of searching for the kayaker who went missing on Carter Lake, searchers on Wednesday said the Loveland man is presumed dead. It is now a recovery mission.

Authorities ask that anyone with information regarding this incident call the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office at 970-416-1985.
