Search continues for tossed kayaker

Authorities were searching Saturday for a Decatur man missing since Friday night when his kayak overturned.

Steven Seitz, 54, and another man were navigating the St. Marys river near Decatur when Seitz’s kayak hit a logjam and overturned, according to Indiana Conservation Officers.

Seitz was thrown into the water and did not resurface, authorities said.

Conservation officers said he was not wearing a life jacket at the time. Shortly before 8:30 p.m. the other man Seitz was with phoned 911 and reported the disappearance.
