A missing kayaker was found dead Saturday after a search of the Embarrass River north of Shiocton. The Appleton Police Department got a report of a missing person at 6:20 a.m. and learned an Appleton man that had gone kayaking the previous day had not returned, according to the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department. The sheriff’s department responded at about 7 a.m. to the boat landings along the Embarrass River and located the man’s car and found footprints and drag marks where the man put the kayak in the river. The state Department of Natural Resources used a plane to search the area and spotted the kayak more than a mile from the man’s car. The man’s body was recovered by the sheriff’s department. The identity of the man was not immediately released.
