Mystery surrounds washed up kayak
A BLACK kayak washed up at Earadale Point, south of Machrihanish, may have belonged to an Irish man who vanished in September.
Police have released details of the black plastic craft discovered last month near Earadale Point by a Kintyre man. It is almost identical to the kayak missing Carrickfergus man Robert Hanna, 47, was paddling off the coast of Islanndmagee on the afternoon of Monday September 28.
A Campbeltown police spokesman said: ‘ When it was found a police helicopter from Glasgow was scrambled and made a search two miles north and south of where the kayak was found.’
On the day he disappeared, Mr Hanna was not reported missing for some hours until he failed to collect one of his children from school. A Police Service of Northern Ireland superintendent Ryan Henderson said: ‘A kayak was found in the Campbeltown area on October 18. We believe it belongs to Robert Hanna. The investigation is on-going as we try to establish what happened to Mr Hanna.’
