Families and friends join the search for missing Marion kayaker
January 06, 2014 12:20 AM
FAIRHAVEN — A search organized by friends and family of the missing Marion duck hunter drew more than 200 people to West Island on Sunday afternoon.......
The official search was renewed by state Environmental Police on Sunday morning with a sonar scan and a police dog searching the area. A meeting is scheduled this week with the Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council Underwater Search and Recovery Team to discuss underwater search options as well, Kobza said.
A Brown University student in the class of 2015, Dourdeville was last seen around 2 p.m. Tuesday — New Year's Eve — leaving his home with a kayak and a shotgun to go duck hunting. The Coast Guard found his red 9-foot kayak just before 11 p.m., approximately 3 miles offshore between West Island and Falmouth. Dourdeville was scheduled to return at sunset Tuesday, and his mother reported him missing at 7:42 p.m.
The search that followed was suspended Thursday afternoon due to the winter storm.
The investigation is "active and ongoing" Kobza said in a statement Sunday.
"Public safety agencies launched a full-blown air, sea and land search last week, utilizing helicopters, boats and all-terrain vehicles. Unfortunately, Mr. Dourdeville was not found, even with the use of thermal imaging and night vision technology," Kobza said in the statement. "There are hundreds of square miles to search in the area of Buzzards Bay where Mr. Dourdeville's kayak was found adrift. In addition to the vast ocean area involved in this operation, cold water temperatures, frigid wind and poor weather have greatly added to the challenges of the search.".......
Dourdeville is described as about 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a thin build and brown hair. He was wearing heavyweight brown Carhartt trousers and a red flotation jacket, police said.

The police are continuing their search for Dana Dourdeville of Marion, Mass. He left his family's home around 2 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2013 with a kayak to go duck hunting. He did not return by dark and his mother Karen went to search for him and found his car in the parking lot at West Island in Fairhaven. She reported him missing and the Coast Guard found his kayak floating about three miles off the island. It was dry inside with one glove.

FAIRHAVEN —M.L. Baron was casually going about his New Year’s Eve when he heard a dispatch regarding a missing Marion kayaker. At the time, he didn’t think much of it.

But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)
We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.
