Police appealed for help to find the kayaker

A KAYAKER from Barton who went missing yesterday (Monday) evening has been found safe and well.


Dorset Police had launched an appeal for the public’s help after an extensive search involving the Coastguard failed to find Jordan Lane (25), who had last been heard from around 6pm as he kayaked off the coast along Poole.

He had been due to travel on the craft from the Canford Cliffs area back to his home address but did not return.

But, about two hours after asking for help to locate Jordan this morning, police confirmed he had been found safe and well in the Bournemouth area.

A force spokesperson said: “We would like to thank everyone who shared our appeal.”
