On May 17, a 71-year-old man, Zygmunt Janiewicz was reported missing after his surfski kayak washed ashore.
Kelowna RCMP used all available resources in their search for the man. A full-scale search of the shoreline and waters were undertaken to find the man. The Central Okanagan Search and Rescue (COSAR) launched a helicopter overhead to further the search.
On May 19, COSAR called off the search and the investigation was turned over to the West Kelowna RCMP.
