Authorities resumed searching on Saturday for a 58-year-old White Oak man who went missing along the Youghiogheny River in North Huntingdon.

Township police said they had not found James G. Leffard as of early Saturday afternoon.

His vehicle was found along the river in the Turner Valley section of the township on Friday, Sgt. Gregory T. Arendas said. An avid kayaker, Leffard's kayak was found unoccupied with his cellphone and identification inside near Coulter, Allegheny County.

Police said they were uncertain whether Leffard had an accident or a medical problem.

Authorities resumed the search about 7 a.m. Saturday after disbanding it about seven hours earlier because of darkness.

River rescue boats and all-terrain vehicles scoured the river banks. Canines aided authorities in the search.
