Tourney canceled when angler goes missing on Florida lake

One boater had been located and one is still missing after both disappeared during a fishing tournament Thursday.

According to posts on Facebook, Bill Kidiah and his co-angler, Nik Kayler, went missing on Lake Okeechobee following a fishing tournament.

Bill Kisiah was found alive about 11 p.m. Thursday, but his co-angler, Nik Kayler, still hasn't been found.

News outlets report that two anglers didn't return to a designated weigh-in area on Thursday evening following the first day of the Costa Fishing League Worldwide tournament.

FLW says the men were competing in a dark-colored Ranger Z521 with a red Evinrude G2 outboard.

According to the FLW, Kisiah is a nine-year veteran of the series, and Kayler had fished 61 previous FLW events as a co-angler.

The second day of the competition was canceled Friday to focus on the search, organizers said.

At this time, search and rescue operations are being conducted under the guidance of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Department, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the U.S. Coast Guard.
