August 19, 2014- Firefighters and divers converge on a lake in northern Crawford County searching for a missing kayaker.

Emergency crews were called to Clear Lake near Spartansburg just before 7 pm after a man told our crew he was fishing with the missing man says a flipped kayak was found.
Clear Lake is reportedly only about six feet deep, but it's weedy and murky making the search more difficult.
According to the Spartansburg Fire Chief the search continued after sunset using dogs on boats trained to pick up scents.

The search was suspended early this morning, and is expected to resume later today.
