Rescue workers are looking for a missing kayaker who may have disappeared on the Flat Rock or Driftwood Rivers.

Authorities say that 26-year-old Keygan Matlock of Columbus told friends and family yesterday that he planned to go kayaking in one of those rivers and hasn’t been heard from since. Indiana Conservation officers and Bartholomew County deputies began the search this morning after he failed to return home overnight. His blue/black/yellow kayak is missing from his home.

Matlock is 5’8’ tall and weighs 180 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He was last known to be in the Tannehill Trailer Park area and is believed to be wearing a bright yellow coat with a black and yellow stocking cap.
