Listening to the live radio at 5:35pm seems like the the person has not been found yet.

A sobering reminder of the dangers of winter kiting. Let's hope that this person is found safe and alive.

Stay safe out there and kite within your limits.

Sad end,.. or a good way to go out, depending on perspective. R.I.P

Condolences to the family. Too young to pass, sounds like he was a great community asset. Very sad to hear this.
