ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. – The search continues for a missing kayaker in Alamance County after authorities said his kayak overturned on Saxapahaw Lake.

Rescue crews resumed their search at 6 a.m. Monday after searching for the unidentified 21-year-old since about 10:30 p.m. Sunday.

Deputies said a group of friends were out on the lake at about 6 p.m. Sunday when their kayak overturned.
