Police are asking the public for information after a green kayak and paddle were located floating in the water near Raumati South, Kapiti Coast.
Police were notified of the floating items around 1:40pm today and enquiries are currently underway to confirm if anyone was in the kayak before it was located this afternoon.
It is possible the occupant is back on shore safe and well but police are keeping an open mind as they have received conflicting reports about the kayaker's whereabouts.
Police would like to hear from anyone with information or from the kayaker themselves.
Anyone with information should contact Police on 111.
