PORTLAND, Maine — The U.S. Coast Guard has been searching Casco Bay for the possibility of missing kayakers after a pair of kayaks was found drifting off an island.

The Coast Guard says there were no sign of recent use of the kayaks, which were found drifting off of Cow Island on Saturday morning.

The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/2eDXPTI ) reports the kayaks were first discovered drifting next to each other at about 6:20 a.m. just north of Great Diamond Island.

The Coast Guard is asking anyone with information about the kayaks to call 207-767-0302.
